Because I couldn't wait for a reply, I tried it myself.

I made a disk with UNIFLASH and I start the pc to DOS.
After booting, I changed the good bios with the damaged and I tried to flashing the damaged bios.
Unfortunately, I didn't the bios flashing but I geting an error (Flash data verification error).

The progress bar was red except one green box.I tried all the options of UNIFLASH. Also I tried the afudos(asus) but I geting an error (compatible with existing Bios ROMID).

Can you help me to do Forced-Flash? This is my last choice.
If i can't find the four-digit code? Is there any general code for Forced-Flash?

You could try flashrom (http://www.flashrom.org/) under DOS/Linux/FreeBSD/NetBSD/MacOSX/whatever. If it finds the replacement chip, there's a good chance you can flash it.

The downloads there are source code only, so if you want a ready-to-use binary (.exe or whatever), you may have to ask on the flashrom mailing list or IRC.

If the flash chip crashes when verifying it is broken, which is also the reason the regular flash went wrong. Replace the flash chip for the P4P800-E Deluxe, buy new one.
