Thank you for the report!

(Just a small request that you please keep in mind to start a new
thread the next time you post on a new topic. Ie. post a brand new
message to the list rather than replying. That way, it is easier to
follow the discussion within your new thread. Thanks in advance! :)

That wiki page mentions it has a Intel 915 chipset, I would have
guessed that it's an ICH-8M rather than 6, but never mind. It's an
SPI flash chip and flashrom does not have completely generic SPI
support yet, so I am not surprised that flashrom does not work on
the machine yet.

Sorry about these bad news. :\
