Updated the bios on an Asus M3A78-EM using EZ FLASH 2 and the rom file from the asus website. Update was successful. Now all I get is a message: " missing bootmgr press ctrl-alt-del to restart. Tried to flash the original bios and get a message saying "board is older than currently installed".

What can I do? :ouch:

Please repair Windows as the bios is now newer than what Windows could recongnise. It also caused by the chipset drivers that need to be reinstalled since a bios flash
