There are many BIOS version between the file 0098 and the latest version 0160. Therefore we recommend customer to do the BIOS update installing some version before going to the more resent one.
At this point we can try to roll back the BIOS to version 0098, please follow up the instructions found here: Desktop Boards — Instructions for Recovery BIOS update
Remove the CMOS battery and leave the system without it for about an hour. Then put it back on and restart the system.
If you are able to have your system back at least to the BIOS page, you can try the following sequence until you flash the latest version 0105>0122>0146>0156>0160
You can read the information on the release notes and choose which BIOS you would like to install on your motherboard. http://downloadmirror.intel.com/22273/eng/BL_0160_ReleaseNotes.pdf
