It sounds like your flash didn't take, you may be forced to hot flash or replace your CMOS chip. Have you tried re-flashing? Does your board have the dual-BIOS?

Damn that sucks! Hotflash or replace I guess. No dual BIOS then?

You need to find someone whos board has the same BIOS chip as yours to start with. I believe there is also a service that you can send your chip out to and they will re-flash it or contact Gigabyte and buy another chip.

Same BIOS chip, however if the hot-flash fails or you break a chip you'll have 2 dead MoBos, this is not a project for the "faint of heart" or "empty of wallet".
