<DIV>Thanks for your IRC help a couple days ago. I have been partially
successful in using the ROM layout file (-l) feature in flashrom to
segment the writes to the flash in my HP Z820 workstation. It evident the HP
Z820 flash has two ‘regions’: that below 0x510000 and that 0x510000 and above.
The lower portion contains the coding for the Intel AMT/ME features and other
data. The attached lower.txt file is log of the successful write flash addresses
<DIV>But writing to the space above 0x510000 is still a problem. In that space I
tried writing just to the bootblock area (which is all I am seeking to update in
this flash) and while flashrom tags it initially as read/write, the write fails.
See the attached upper.txt logfile. I did attempt writing to the entire upper
section (not just the bootblock) and got the same results.</DIV>
<DIV>The flash is hardware write enabled or I could not have written to the area
below 0x510000. It seems something else seems needs enabling. Any thoughts would
<DIV>Thanks again ...</DIV>
