Default Bios flashing sabertooth 990fx

after an unsuccessful flash on a sabertooth 990fx, the computer comes up with bios recovery message asking for the support cd. After putting in the cd the message disapears and the computer goes to a black screen and hangs there. From what ive read on this site and others, what i need to do is flash the bios in another computer.
i have a working asus m5a97 evo with an 8-pin chip in it like the sabertooth however the numbers on the chips are different.

What i am wondering is if it is possible to use the m5a97 to flash the sabertooth's bios using the method described here: http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/39

if you need any more info let me know and ill get it for you

You will need an identical motherboard or a motherboard that uses the same kind of flash chip.

they both use an 8 pin dip,

m5a97 evo
Winbond
25032VAIG
1116

sabertooth 990fx
Winbond
25032VAIG
1121

the chips are almost identical , and this would be the first time ive done this so im not sure how close they need to be.
