[coreboot] Hosed ms-7032, I foolishly flashed the bios with a .700

Flashrom finds the chipset to be VIA VT8237, and the actual chip it finds is a PMC Pm49FL004 512KB @ 0xfff80000. This is what I get now, I'm going to try your suggestion and have a look in the scrapyard, I think there's one quite close by. 
kind Regards
