No EEPROM/flash device found

  • Hello,

    I have a problem with my APU2 card.

    I want to update it to version and I have the following error when I run the command:

    flashrom -w /tmp/apu2_v4.14.0.3.rom -p internal:boardmismatch=force

    Result :

    flashrom v1.0 on FreeBSD 10.3-RELEASE-p29 (amd64)

    flashrom is free software, get the source code at

    Using clock_gettime for delay loops (clk_id: 4, resolution: 2ns).

    coreboot table found at 0xdffae000.

    Found chipset "AMD FCH".

    Enabling flash write... OK.

    No EEPROM/flash device found.

    Note: flashrom can never write if the flash chip isn't found automatically.

    Did you have this problem ?

    Pfsense is installed on this APU2.

    Can you help me ?

    Thank you for your reply


  • Interesting... I have encountered this problem only once when I did know the SPI flash was broken and couldn't flash it with the internal programmer.

    Could you please attach a verbose log from flashrom?
    "flashrom -w /tmp/apu2_v4.14.0.3.rom -p internal:boardmismatch=force -VVV"

    It will print a lot of information, consider redirecting it to a file.
