          Hi there,


          Do a CMOS on the Board and leave the system with minimum basic information. (minimum configuration to allow it to boot only)


          I will explain to you how to do a BIOS Recovery Mode:


          Instructions for Recovery BIOS Updates
          In the unlikely event that a BIOS update is interrupted, it is possible the BIOS may be left in an unusable state. The recovery process requires the chassis to be opened to move the onboard BIOS Configuration Jumper.

          1. Copy the recovery file (*.bio) to a formatted usb disk.

          File: http://downloadcenter.intel.com/T8Clearance.aspx?sType=&agr=Y&ProductID=2933&DwnldID=17632&url=/17632/eng/CB0083.BIO&PrdMap=&strOSs=38&OSFullName=OS Independent&lang=eng

          2. Place the usb disk in the target system.

          3. Shut down the system and unplug AC power.

          4. Open the chassis and remove the BIOS Configuration Jumper. See the Technical Product Specification for details including the location of this jumper.
          5. Power the system on.

          6. Wait 2-5 minutes for the update to complete. When the usb drive LED is lit, the system is copying the recovery code into the FLASH device.

          7. System will either turn off when the recovery process is completed or it will prompt you to turn off the system.

          8. Remove usb disk

          9. Replace the BIOS Configuration Jumper.

          10. Restart system.


          Note: Dont connect any other usb devices, media drive to the system other than just the recvoery media. If you can't do it via the USB, use a blank CD. Then connect only the CD Drive.


          Note: these can be found on:

          Try to see if the board issues 3 beeps without any memory.
          Try to leave the jumper on the Maintenance/Configuration Mode and see if it boots directly into the BIOS.
          Try the system out of the chassis to do the test


          Let me know how it goes.

          Hope this helps a bit.
