Will flashing DH61WW (AA: G23116-206) with BIOS 0099 up from 0044 still give me support for i5-2320 processor?

When I flashed from the original 0038 to 0046 it gave me the message "Unsupported Processor" at powerup time (and prevented the OS from loading).

Then I had to go through the complicated recovery procedure back to 0042 (because 0038 was not available to end users) which gave me Management Engine version 0.0.0.0 and an unusable board, until at last, by trial and error on version numbers, I was able to flash 0044 using the recovery procedure, so that the i5-2320 processor was recognized and the motherboard was functional again.

Now I want to correct the PS/2 keyboard issue that 0113 corrects but per the 0113 instructions I have to flash 0099 first.  However I am afraid that if I upgrade to version 0099 I will lose processor support again (since it happenned to me every time I tried a BIOS which had the 3rd Generation Core Processor Support Warning on the Relase Notes.pdf).

Can someone from Intel please confirm this, I hate bricked motherboards because they (1) force me to buy another Windows license, (2) make me think of not buying the same brand of motherboard again.  Thanks in advance,
