Motherboard - Biostar M6VBE (1.1)
SB - VT82C596B

Before I was aware of what I had done I was doing the following :

Downloaded the BIOS from Biostar site, patched it to support my VIA VT6421A SATA/RAID PCI card using "cbrom" and flashed it with Award Flash Utilty v7.03.
After the reboot there was no response from the PC, no output to the monitor, no beeps.

I started to look around what could be cause, turns out that I've flashed the wrong BIOS, I have an Fujitsu-Siemens motherboard, so I downloaded the BIOS image from Fujitsu-Siemens support site and followed an guide in Biostar's knowledge base tried it several times, without success.

Could this mean the mobo is dead / unrecoverable ?
