you did the flashrom -r. First step.

Take a second chip. Burn the factory bios onto that chip with flashrom -w.

Try to boot it. Make sure that works.

Then burn a third chip with factory bios.

Then take the original and a backup and put them somewhere safe. If
you only have ONE factory bios part, you will at some point make a
mistake and burn it with a bad bios image: that's a guarantee. So make
sure you have two factory BIOS chips and label them well, and put one
where it is impossible to pick it up by mistake and burn it.

If you can set up one machine as a "burner" and one as a "development"
that's the best.

Then it's time to start trying to get coreboot going with the third chip.
