    Default G1 Assassin 2 X79 Backup Bios hosed?

    G1 Assassin 2 X79 Backup Bios hosed?-image-jpgHey all,
    I inherited this motherboard which I feel is too good to throw away.
    The previous owner decided to de-solder M BIOS and damaged the solder pads.
    Bios B is still intact, it boots ok but I am stuck on UEFI screen saying BIOS has been reset, please decide how to continue.
    Whichever option I choose freezes with a blank blue UEFI screen.
    Can anyone tell me is it possible at all to flash the B BIOS, manual says no but I am pretty sure there would be a way around it. I also have 2 new BIOS chips for this mobo so I can try and resolder, but would prefer not to.If its a last resort does anyone know if I cut B BIOS off and resolder the new bios - will it boot, or is their some sort of smarts on the board that would always want to boot or reflash the MBIOS even though it no longer exists. Hope this makes sense.
    Any bright people on this forum have any clues or am I up the proverbial? Seems such a waste to chuck this board out.
