hello christoph,

as your log shows, the write protection pin of the flash chip is
enabled. to turn that off we need to add a small routine that tells the
southbridge (probably) to raise a pin. it might be necessary to reverse
engineer this routine from the existing BIOS, so please be patient.
please also provide a log of lspci -nn and lspci -xxnnvvv.

can you confirm that W39V040C is the flash chip on your board?

Kind regards/Mit freundlichen Grüßen, Stefan Tauner
