Did you try resetting the BIOS with the clear CMOS jumper? If that doesn't do the trick, it's time to go shopping for a new board. You should have taken this guy's advice:

This forum has many stories of failed BIOS updates. The end is rarely a happy one.
Consult the instructions that came with the update to see what, if any, recovery options are available.

BIOS updates are usually successful. But considering the often dire consequences of a failure you should take such updates very seriously. And failures can occur even if you do everything correctly.

A BIOS update should only be done when it specifically addresses a problem you are having. And then only after serious consideration if it is worth the risk.

Please understand that branded motherboards are not always the same as the retail version, there are often differences. Even a BIOS update from the same retail board but different version numbers often need a different BIOS. Just deciding that the branded board is the same but that they just wanted to remove the overclocking options (while possible) is not necessarily the case. The difference could be that they used a different component, similar and nearly the same, but from a different source with slightly different specs, or it may be made in a completely different factory, and possibly a different country. You should ONLY use the correct BIOS update for your board and branded boards mean you need to go to the system manufacturer's site for the correct one.
Now you will need to purchase the original board from the manufacturer, the retail version if you can, or look for a completely different board (probable problems with windows accepting it without reloading and possibly calling Microsoft to reactivate it).

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

You took a chance, botched the BIOS flash & trashed the board. What do you want us to do? That's what happens when you gamble - somtimes you win, sometimes you lose.
