Hi Lap Ngo Doan,

your flashrom version is very old. Please get a newer flashrom version from
or compile latest flashrom from source: http://flashrom.org/Downloads

Please retry the test with flashrom 0.9.5 or 0.9.6 or newer in verbose mode:
flashrom -p internal -VV -r ROM_BOARD2.rom
flashrom -p internal -VV -v ROM_BOARD2.rom

Then post the new verbose logs to this mailing list.
