    I need some further help. It looks like these are the values on the EEPROM:

    BH1619
    25B64CS1G
    POU913

    The SkyPRO programmer tells me that it cannot identify a corresponding device. It looks like this is a GigaDevice part, but it's difficult to know for certain. How should I configure the SkyPro to work with this particular EEPROM?

    Yes, it is a GigaDevice; use GD25B64C, if the programmer knows that one. If it does yet it still cannot id the chip then you need to make sure it has proper contact with pin #1.

    And did you desolder it or did you use a clip? Not all systems and chips can use ISP, so you may have to desolder first, if you hadn't already.

    That does not show in the dropdown. It only seems to show GD25L... and GD25Q... devices under SPI FLASH / GIGADEVICE. SkyPRO 6.8.3.821, showing no updates available.

    I have a clip available, but I'm stuck currently by the lack of the appropriate chip in the list.

    The Q model is compatible with the B type, so that will do fine. Remember to make the backup first, then make a second one and do a hex compare of the two dumps; if the programmer's setting is correct then they'll match.

    So this has been very....interesting. Even with the programmer, the only BIOS that seems to work with this system is the one from Origin. Neither the Coffee Lake nor the Cannon Lake P750DM BIOS will work with this system. They write and verify just fine, but the system boots to a black screen. Baffling, but at least I have a working system back (although it's a shame not to be able to get the firmware updated)

    Thanks very much to all who came to my aid in this misadventure.

    I believe the Coffee Lake Refresh Thread has more BIOS for the Cannonlake.
