hi there!

bernd has already answered most of your questions. the only thing i
want to add is this:
the list of mainboards in flashrom -L and in the wiki are only
indicating support for flashing the onboard flash chips (where the
BIOS/firmware) resides. for pci-based (and other "external")
programmers this is not relevant.
the "problem" is, that the internal programmer is the default. for
everything else you have to select the programmer with the -p option as
bernd told you and which is also described in the man page.
Kind regards/Mit freundlichen Grüßen, Stefan Tauner
