Hi Kiwi,

Yes Intel fixed the problem and I got it back but after installing everything again I find out that the bios was updated to 5200 and Intel placed a supervisor password on the bios so that I can't change my settings. So I tried clearing the cmos and restore to default but that didn't do anything so I contacted the company AGAIN and they told me to send it back again and then they send me a new one.

And today I get my new one:) Hopefully this was the last time.

Okay checked the board, and find out that when I fully reset it to factory settings it flashes itself back to bios 0048 and not to 0038 so that means I can't update it with a patched 0051 or 0052 bios..

So hopefully there is a way to install os X without patching the bios.

No, that should be no problem. Just downgrade to an unpatched 0038 BIOS and then flash your patched 0051. That worked for me.

Oh yes! Thanks Mactester.

I just downgraded the bios to 38 by downloading en running the Windows bios 0038 update tool from Intel's site.
And now it runs the patched 0051 bios again.
