    Today "new" UEFI showed again but now they are equiped with Windows flash tool which check if you have B3 board. If you have B2 then installator won't flash new UEFI.

    It's too late for solution.

    You shouldn't touch new UEFI unless you were planning for quick swap to Ivy Bridge.

    Now it's game over mate.

    :f

    I would need to borrow a Sandy Bridge CPU to update the bios. I don't know where I could find one of those.

    Edit. I did borrow a Sandy Bridge CPU. It booted up and I was able to upgrade the BIOS. I had to install windows to get to the Windows firmware updater. The Firmware updater built into the BIOS didn't work.
    then I replaced the Sandy Bridge CPU with an Ivy Bridge one and it worked.
