I don't know if tried to do BIOS recovery or not. So here its is please do the recovery process as mentioned below ..
After this check if your machine is booting properly or not.. if its working then flash 104 BIOS with iflash method
1. Make a bootable USB flash drive using any software for instance you can use HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool - v2.1.8
2. Download zip file http://downloadmirror.intel.com/22523/eng/AGH6110H.86A.0104.BI.ZIP (contains BIOS & iflash2)
3. Copy iflash2.exe & AG0104.BIO file in USB flash drive
4. Boot through USB flash drive.
Command: iflash2.exe /pf AG0104.BIO
5. Restart the machine ..
Let me know if its works .
same problem here. With recovery jumper the bios is now on 0104.
But the pcie port does not work anymore.
Bios says "Not Populated"
Also the CIR. It's enabled and the device shows up in OS.
But no events are received.
I tried to reapply 0104 with suggested iflash method. But no success.

BIOSID's do not match

I have tested the DH61AG and I was not able to replicate this issue from my side. I followed the instructions to update the bios based on the document for Bios updates and I had no problems with it.
My best recommendation is doing a bios recovery to a previous version and then trying updating to the next one and so on. Before doing this updates, you can try clearing the cmos on the unit by removing the battery and disconnecting all other components from the motherboard for about 10-20 minutes.
In case that the updates fail, you can contact your local support so they can help you out with an RMA if necessary.
I would just like to chime in on this forum having just spent 8 hours battling with my motherboard and very nearly reaching the point of having to send it back.
Similar to the OP, I was on BIOS 040 and wanted to get to the latest 108 firmware by way of transition version 099. Here is what I experienced:
- Successfully flashed to 099 using the F7 Express and got exactly the same symptoms as the OP. Saw the version of the Intel Management Engine in the BIOS listed as v0.0.0.0.
- Attempts to then F7 flash 106 and 108 resulted in the "FwUpdateBufferFull" error message and failure.
- Following the support article on removing the motherboard jumper and using emergency bios recovery (Recovery BIOS update), re-flashing 099 on a USB stick resulted in continuous reboots with no screen activity.
- Flashing 108 in emergency recovery yielded an apparently successful flash but compared to the support screenshots I saw only half of the firmware 'categories' get updated. The motherboard remained inoperative with similar symptoms but the BIOS showed version 108. IME still listed as v0.0.0.0.
- Exactly the same behaviour emergency flashing with 106.
- Finally, as a last resort, I emergency flash 104 and bingo, firmware succeeds exactly as the support screenshots suggest and the motherboard is fully operational.
- Ordinary flash to 108 from here succeeds and finally motherboard is fully up to date and operational.
As far as I can tell there is a very important step missing from the readme that accompanies these firmwares. It says:
If your system's current BIOS version is 0039 through 0045:
1. Update to the transition version 0099.
2. Then update to 0104 or later.
This is incorrect. It should read:
2. First update to 0104 and then later.
It was essential for me to flash directly from 099 to 104 before flashing to later versions, a critical step that could have saved me hours of frustration had I known.
Hope this helps someone having similar problems.
I know this is an old thread, but it is coming up in search a lot. I wanted to add that those who have been successful in getting to 0099 will see a blank screen if they try the F7 Express Update method but do NOT have a FAT-formatted USB thumb-drive with the AG1040.BIO in the root directory of that thumb-drive. This is critical to understand that 0099 is not a usable BIOS for anything but completing this step, since it simply prepares the BIOS for the next flash step.
For me this meant removing the jumper, since it took quite some time to figure out that it wasn't going to give me the menu that I'd expected to use to navigate to the directory and BIO file that I wanted to select.
I would also suggest you disconnect any SATA drives during this process, especially any SSD, since they seem to get corrupted if you tend to power off the machine while you try to get the process correct the first time. I have more than one SSD on the bench waiting for me to clean them up.
