    I have update with @bios utility the bios with version F14c but i
    received the message "update failed" when i reboot the system the dual
    bios utility copy backup bios into main bios with version F5. After
    this i have restart correctly the system and reinsert previous bios
    (F13) but also this time the message is Update fault".
    This time when i reboot the system, the dual bios utility don't start,
    the boot seem to start correctly but after initial screen of F13
    version with message (load default settings) the system halt, with
    black screen with cursor blinking.
    I unable to enter in dual bios utility to use the backup bios. There
    is any possibility to start the system?
    Probably the bios have partially updated (only the first part) and the
    mainboard don't recognize bios fault....

    found a solution on another forum;

    If you short pins 3-4 on the southbridge side while booting it will crash the bios and reload from backup :)
