GA-Z97X-UD5H - Lost Both BIOSs - No Boot - WHAT NOW.

Owen CARLTON 1 Reputation point

I have been working on this PC trying to solve Boot issues - I got to thr point where I decided to update the Chipset Drivers and the BIOS from F8 to F9.
I killed the #1 BIOS, by Inadvertently Pressing the CMOS Clr Button, with Power On.
I then switched to #2 BIOS and worked the rest of the day with no problems - In hindsight, I should have Copied the Backup BIOS #2 to the Original BIOS #1, but I did not.
Next morning, I tried to Boot and I had Nothing on the Screen (Black) - No Messages - Nothing at all, except I heard the CD/DVD RW found by the BIOS in POST, I guess.
I Switched back to BIOS #1, hoping it had been Automatically Restored from the #2 BIOS - No such Luck.
SOooooo - Where to Next.
It is NOT possible to get a Replacement NB of this Configuration, so, I would like to get this thing Resolved with BIOS updated, by some means that can be easily applied and that will work - All I have read on Google that is related, is Worthless and wanders off onto other Topics.
I would appreciated whatever assistance you can offer.
I am an Ex Service Veteran Pensioner, so I do Not have Cash to throw around.

    Hi @Owen CARLTON ,

    maybe this is helpful:

    The issue is related to a specific motherboard of a specific vendor. You best option might be to ask in the Gigabyte support forums:
