...and if so, can it be flashed with the Pioneer 108 firmware?

Needed a drive quick and no locals had the Pioneer...

On hardware level they are compatible according to forum users.

However, according to these people flashing from Asus 1604 to Pioneer 108 is not possible:

You could try the Flashman bios though, I'm not sure if it'll help you though. It can also destroy your drive, so be careful (you take the risks and carry the responsibility):

Yes, the drives are identical and firmwares interchangeable. Did it at least 5 times back and forth too try different versions.
