But with the bios savior the flash chip was detected, so in theory it
might be an unsupported chip type tristar. Cant fint docs on this..

Also the flash device type :F492002UA looks very weird. Can you double
check it does not say something different or something else on the chip?
can you recognize a vendor (logo/string)?

can you verify whether the image starts with 25 a6?
