Long version: I was fixing a friends C=64 (dead hex inverter 7406 + flaky color SRAM) and while I was doing that I thought I will give them a nice JiffyDOS kernal
-- no good deed shall go unpunished!
....
Did you install the JiffyDOS switchless?

Yup. Didn't have any 27c256's lying around... and I did not want to deadbug the 27c128 on the back of the original ROM :)
I gave the original ROM back, pins clean, to swap back if any incompatibility is found. I will find another solution then. The owner is pretty happy as of now. (2wks)

Don't Download.
Microsoft Defender detect it as a Virus (Win32/Ramnit.B)

I had a challenge a few days ago, I want to burn an image onto a M27C128 from ST, but this specific eprom is not on the IC support list.

Due to the missing IC support, then I choose M27128A, but this gave me a burning error after a few bytes. I erased the chip and tried again as AM27C128. This burning went fine and I have able to verify the code (with “Check device ID” unchecked).

Question:
I have not tested the chip yet, but it should work fine too in the theory? (Or am I wrong?)

It's probably okay if it verified. But if you want to make sure the substitute you chose is well suited you should get the full data sheets of the two devices and compare the programming algorithms, pulse widths, margins, etc.
Mind you, you can't be sure that the TL866 is following the recommendations, it's very much a cheap and cheerful device programmer.
