hello and sorry for your loss!
to spare others from experiencing what you have done today, i would
like to know the reason WHY you did execute flashrom -E?
what would have stopped you? do you think a message printed by
flashrom like "The flash chip is now empty, do not turn off the PC!"
would have helped you i.e. would have stopped you from powering off?

to recover your board the flash chip has to be written with the correct
image. as this can not be done from the PC itself it has to be done
by an external programmer. maybe you know some hardware guys or a fablab
in your area that could help. if the flash chip is in a socket you can
also easily order a replacement and put it in yourself.

Kind regards/Mit freundlichen Grüßen, Stefan Tauner
