Bus Pirate and FlashRom saved my mainboard
I already wrote something about the rescue of my computer in my blog, however it was written in german.
I flashed my brand new core i7 mainboard as my processor wasn’t recognized correctly. After that, the mainboard was completely broken. However I connected the Bus Pirate to the mainboard and used a second pc to reflash the BIOS using flashrom. The first flash was running for 8 hours! But I reported all issues at the flashrom mailinglist and the guys helped to speed up flashrom with Bus Pirate so many times that it works much better now. I was so happy to have my mainboard running fine again, I bought a second Bus Pirate and send it as a gift to the main Bus Pirate implementation guys: Carl-Daniel Hailfinger ;-)
Thanks to all who made this possible.
