your board needs a small piece of code to make the flash rom writable.
actually we already have it in the source and it is just not triggered
on your board. the question is why. we identify mainboards via PCI IDs
(and sometimes SMBIOS data) and apparently yours does not match our
pattern. please provide the output of
lspci -nn
lspci -nnxxxvvv
