I've updated the BIOS of my friend's K7S5A mobo because it didn't work correctly with his DDR RAM. I've downloaded the latest amiflash utility and the latest bios from the ecs homepage. I started with a bootdisk in DOS and started the flasher. The program said that the new bios file is correct and I pressed enter for flashing. Everything seemed fine. But then it restarted the computer by itself (or is that normal?). I thought that it is flashed now but the computer doesn't start. :(
The computer shows nothing on the screen and it restarts all the time. I see that it checks the drives and it beeps once (normal start). But then it restarts again. When I put a floppy in the drive it beeps twice (parity error). I've removed the DDR ram and put a SDRAM stick in but shows the same error.

I hope someone can help.
