> Before programming the bios I think flashrom validates the flash chips. So in my case it would find the size of flash as 4MB not 8MB. If I give the 8MB image in the command, would it not throw error like "the image size is more than flash size" ?

since the intel chipsets are so special we handle them a bit differently
than normal. flashrom will detect a special virtual 8MB flash chip
instead of the two separate 4MB devices. btw i want to stress again
that this will only work if the flash descriptor is set up correctly.
this is a hardware limitation.

Kind regards/Mit freundlichen Grüßen, Stefan Tauner
