<div style="color: red">The secondary chip must have different size (preferable greater capacity) than the primary chip in order to avoid accidents: <code>flashrom -p internal -r backup.bin [...] Reading flash... done.</code> does not mean the size of the chipset and the ROM image match, only that the ROM image can be read. Now to the point, <code>sudo flashrom -p internal -w new.bin [...] Error: Image size doesn't match</code> is what you get when you have different size on the chips. This will save you from accidentally burning Cooreboot to the primary chip if you forget to switch to the secondary chip. You have been warned!</div>

The point is that flashrom do not burn the Coreboot image (<code>sudo flashrom -p internal -w new.bin [...] Error: Image size doesn't match</code>) if the size of the chips are different which will save you from accidentally burning Cooreboot to the primary chip if you forget to switch to the secondary chip.
