          These are some things to attempt:


          A. Reset the CMOS:


          1. Power off computer and unplug from wall.
          2. Remove CR2032 battery from board.
          3. Wait a full 15 minutes.
          4. Reinstall battery onto board.
          5. Power back on.


              If this works, you will need to enter BIOS Setup and set the date and time.


          B. Reinstall the latest BIOS using the recovery method.


          1. Copy the .BIO file onto a freshly-formatted (FAT32) USB flash stick. Use USB 2.0 flash stick (do not use USB 3.0 flash stick!).
          2. With system powered off, remove yellow jumper from the BIOS Configuration jumper block.
          3. Plug the USB flash stick into a black USB 2.0 port on the back panel of the board (do not use blue USB 3.0 ports and do not use front panel USB ports!).
          4. Power on system.
          5. If this works, you should see the progress of the update on your display. It will tell you when it is done.
          6. Power off system.
          7. Restore yellow jumper to pins 1-2 of the BIOS Configuration jumper block.
          8. Power on system
          9. Use F2 to enter BIOS setup.
          10. Use F9 to restore BIOS configuration to defaults.
          11. Make any changes (boot order, etc.) necessary for your hardware configuration.
          12. Exit BIOS Setup saving the configuration.


          Hope this helps,

              If you used the image from someone else's flash IC, installing BIOS updates afterwards is not going to update these fields; you will continue to run on their Serial Number and MAC address (amongst other things).


              Have you tried the procedures I detailed above? If your attempts were prior to me posting these procedures, try them again.

                    If neither of these processes work, I don't really have anything further to suggest. You may have bricked it completely.


                    If the board is less than 3 years old and you are the original owner, Intel will replace it. Contact Intel Customer Support if this is the case. For information regarding how to contact Intel Customer Support, refer to this web page: Contact Support. If you are not in North America, click on the world symbol near the bottom of the page. It will start a dialog that allows you to specify your region and country and get a local contact number...
