You can watch the write line on the chip and see if its getting
asserted.  Then you know for sure if its flash chip or chipset.

The IMS config is setup for a 29f040b which is a 512k part. Did you
change the rom size in the config file?   But yes your rom size needs
to match your chips.

Yes you will get some boot messages and it will try to dump the spd contents.
