the board was working fine, when i saw that it was on a rather old bios version
so i decided to flash it, using ASUS EZflash program from the bios.
so i downloaded the correct file (2002) and used it to flash the bios
the program run ok, checked the file, and started flashing -  no problems whatsoever
only - it would not boot again after the flash - resulting in the infamous (or must i say famous) CPU INIT error you get at pwr on
i tried installing 800 and 556 DDR2 (for different ram voltages - as you find on the net  http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/253146-30-init-error-solution-maximus-striker
see also the kostakiss solution -  but neither helped

do you have any ideas?
