    I just flashed my BIOS on an ABIT IC7-MAX becuase I was getting the
    "CPU Unworkable" message. I updated with version 16 from the ABIT
    site. I now get a message that begins with "Verifying DMI Pool
    Data........." followed by "Disk Read Error Occured" The option is ot
    press Ctrl Alt Del.

    Background, I have two drives (C:) set up in a RAID 0 and two drives
    (X:) setup in a RAID 1. I believe that I this could be a RAID issue as
    I no longer get the NORMAL message to descirbe the RAID arrays. Also,
    can someone tell me if chose the right bios (my board says vs. 1.0)
    and I chose vs. 16.

    sounds like you didn't set the bios back up correctly after the flash. you
    don't want to flash back to a previous bios, personal opinion... but you do
    want to clear the bios with the jumper with all power removed, and then set
    things back up correctly with the onchip SATA set to raid mode with the raid
    ROM BIOS enabled.
