I have a Toshiba Satellite A100 notebook and when I run flashrom with the following command line:
I get the verbose of the chipset and bios found, but a second later it shuts down
When I use the following command line:
sudo flashrom -f -r a100.bin -c SST39VF080
it prints the message but in this case it does not power off.
No coreboot table found.
Found chipset "Intel ICH6-M", enabling flash write... OK.
This chipset supports the following protocols: Non-SPI.
Calibrating delay loop... OK.
No EEPROM/flash device found.
Force read (-f -r -c) requested, forcing chip probe success:
Found chip "SST SST39VF080" (1024 KB, Parallel) at physical address 0xfff00000.
Please note that forced reads most likely contain garbage.
Reading flash... done.
I would like to report that the bios file read with flashrom was the same that I write with the program provided by Toshiba.
