I rebooted and BIOS was ok (I flashing with asus afudos utility).
Now, I will replace moterhboard  with the new one but, I collect some 
information from system, maybe helps you to improve flashrom.

I ran all commands from http://www.flashrom.org/Board_Testing_HOWTO

flashrom -V (flashrom.log)
lspci -nnvvxxx (lspci.log)
superiotool -deV (superiotool.log)

also, I ran:

biosdecode (biosdecode.log)
hwinfo --bios (hwinfo-bios.log)
dmidecode --type bios (dmidecode-bios.log)
lshw (lshw.log)

All results are in attached files.

I ran:
flashrom 0.9.2 (flashrom-w.log),
0.9.3 (flashrom-093.log) and
svn version (flashrom-svn.log, this give me a segmentation fault)


Also, I attached original-1303.rom wich is original bios (flashrom -r) 
and new bios P5LD2-VM-1401.rom (wich give me error when try to write).

I hope that this info is enough for improve your great tool.
