Very strange problem of ghost data!!!

Hi All, I try to explain my problem.
I bougth an eva board from Renesas. This board has SH2A 7203 as
microcontroller and as NOR flash a Spansion s29gl032a11tfir23
Renesas gave to me the E10A emulator and the .mot file to esare the nor flash
during the firmware upgrading process.
Well, starting from the schematics of the eva board I designed a custom board
and becouse of availability problem, even if to use s29gl032a11tfir23 flash I
used SST sst39VF64002B nor flash.
Now I have some boards. Among of them, some works properly; others allow you
to progam and work properly only untill you leave connected the Power
supplier; if you give a reset disconnecting and reconnecting the power
supplier you lose all the data sent to flash. The behaviour is like you program
the firmware into the flash, the data are stored into an intermediate ram but it
is not really stored into the memory cells of the flash; so if you stay
supplied you read properly the flash; as you desconnect the power suppier and
reconnect again you lose everything and with the emulator you read at
0x00000000 (start up address) 0xFFFFFFFF
Any of you could be so kind to tell me whach could be the reason of so strange
Thanks a lot in advance.
