I'm going to be slow about this as I don't want to brick my very useful
notebook, but the bios read seemed to work successfully. Here is the
output from the read operation. This is an old IBM T30 and it pretty
much does everything I need as it stands. It does need an upgraded bios
to accommodate some updated wifi features.
I'm really concerned about performing the write operation.
#sudo flashrom -r original.rom
[sudo] password for <name>
Calibrating delay loop... OK.
No coreboot table found.
Found chipset "Intel ICH3-M", enabling flash write... OK.
Found chip "ST M50FW080" (1024 KB) at physical address 0xfff00000.
This flash part has status UNTESTED for operations: PROBE READ ERASE
WRITE Please email a report to flashrom at coreboot.org if any of the above
operations work correctly for you with this flash part. Please include
the full output from the program, including chipset found. Thank you for
Reading flash... done.
