After figuring out that the makefile for flashrom is really simple, I
got the static build that I needed. Once on the system that I got to
boot in a round about way, I got the output below.
- -bash-3.00# ./flashrom
coreboot table found at 0x500.
Vendor ID: Intel, part ID: SE7520JR22D
Found chipset "Intel ICH5/ICH5R", enabling flash write... OK.
Unknown vendor:board from coreboot table or -m option: Intel:SE7520JR22D
Calibrating delay loop... OK.
No EEPROM/flash device found.
If you know which flash chip you have, and if this version of flashrom
supports a similar flash chip, you can try to force read your chip. Run:
flashrom -f -r -c similar_supported_flash_chip filename
Note: flashrom can never write when the flash chip isn't found
I am going to read the documentation, as I have been, but does this
mean that I am dead in the water? The only way that linux bios could
even be on these nodes is through the use of LBFLASH, which if I
understand correctly is pre flashrom.
