I managed to brick my wife's PC tonight when doing a BIOS update.
It has a Gigabyte EP45-DS4P motherboard, and I grabbed the F8 version bios for it from the Gigabyte website, used QFlash to flash it, which appeared to work, but upon rebooting, it powercycles continuously before any form of POST.
Is there a way to recover from this ? (I suspect not, and have ordered another m/b, but it doesn't hurt to ask).
So far, I've tried plugging in an old 1.44M FDD with a bootable floppy in it to see if it'll attempt to boot from it (if it did, I'd put the bios flash and good bios (backed up from pre-flash), on it and reflash that way) alas it does not.
