First of all, if you started a BIOS Recovery, I hope that you let it run for at least 10 minutes before powering off. If not, you may have permanently trashed your BIOS.
You updated the BIOS from what version to what version?
There are special instructions in the BIOS Release Notes that you needed to follow. See these documents for more information:
Hope this helps,
Urk! That's a problem. That's way too far to be jumping in one fell swoop. You may have bricked your BIOS by attempting this - but let's see if we can recover...
Try doing a BIOS Recovery operation using the following procedure:
I hope this works,
First of all, Intel does not distribute BIOS updates in BIN file form. They are not secure.
Now, the only way to get a .BIN file is by copying from another, identical board. Since the board's branding (Serial Number, UUID, MAC Address, Password(s), etc.) is also stored in the BIOS flash, copying the flash is going to copy the branding as well. There are no tools that will allow the branding to be updated in the field (Intel does not release them) and, since the branding is stored in encrypted form, you cannot update via .BIN file patching.
Bottom line, this is not a good thing to do. I certainly would not want my board's branding copied like this.
