Hello guys!
I have a problem and i need to solve it very quick. Please help me! :( 
I have a laptop ASUS A56CA. The moderboard model is K56CA.
I just installed Windows 7 Ultimate x64 and everything was working great!
After i finished installing all my apps, i sow that is a new Bios version available, and i flashed it with Asus FlashUtility.
The process was successfully completed, and the next time i restarted my laptop, the bio popped up.
Now, the bios can't boot my HDD.

Here are the steps i made:
- My previously Bios version was 206
- I installed Bios version 208 (successfully)
- The computer restarted, and entered automatically in Bios
- Now, the Bios doesn't have boot options anymore.
- When i reboot the laptop, and press ESC (boot device select menu), there are none devices.
- I loaded the default settings in Bios, but no changes.
- If i enter (in Bios) in "Advanced" - "Sata Config", sata mode is set to "AHCI" and i can see my two sata devices: "Hard Disk" and "ATAPI CDROM"
- I go back to "Boot option" and no items here. :( 
- I tried to use the "Easy Flash" function and flash the Bios again from a USB Drive, but he won't do that beacause the version is the same (and it won't work with a older one).

What can i do? Please help! :(
