Skipping an update didn't cause the problem. How did you flash it?

A BIOS file always is complete; it never is an update. It looks like you flashed the BIOS from Windows; did the system crash while flashing it?

You'll have to read about GIGABYTE Virtual Dual BIOS Technology in the manual.

That's very different. The BIOS flash worked fine and there's no need to flash it again. Go into the BIOS and reset to the default values. Then check the boot order and make sure that your CD/DVD is first (in case you need to boot from it at some point) followed by the hard disk. If it fails while booting Windows, then you may need to repair or reinstall.

I think that you simply had a bad flash. I'd download the latest BIOS file again to a USB drive and flash from the BIOS utility instead of Windows. Just make sure that you select the correct BIOS for your motherboard. On the other hand, if there's nothing that the latest version fixes for your system, then don't flash it.
