    Clear CMOS help any? Did you try for a long time, maybe 8+ hours?

    Do you have a floppy disk drive?

    Let us know how the extended clear CMOS works out for you.

    Please unplug the PSU from the board (24 and 4 or 8 pin), or unplug it from the wall and press and hold the case power on button for one minute. Then remove the CMOS battery overnight.

    Great to hear you have a floppy, if all else fails you can try a blind flash via floppy.

    It's not finding the BIOS on the hard drive because it only looks in the HPA hidden section of the drive, so if there is no BIOS backup there it's not going to find one.

    If you used to use a different hard drive on this board, put that old drive back in and it may have the BIOS backup hidden in the HPA.

    Did you already try with a CD Drive ONLY connected to the first SATA port or master IDE, with the motherboard install CD in?
