<div style="color: red">The secondary chip must be greater in capacity than the 4 Mbit (512 kB) primary chip in order to avoid accidents. All revisions of this mainboard carry the same size of the primary chip so this is a thumbrule. <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>
