Which version of BIOS did you flash?
EDIT: Also, what OS are you using?

also, you may have a bad cd, but this is less likely, try using a bootable utility for disk managment usually provided by your hard drive manufacturer.

Unfortuneatley, there is no way to fix this problem yourself. But, don't panic, because there are solutions.
1) Go to www.badflash.com and see if that's what you want to do.
2) You can send your board to ABIT and they will fix it (for a fee).
3) Abit DOES send out new BIOS chips for pretty cheap, but I highly recommend getting a professional to replace it if you have never done it before.
4) Taking it into a shop where they can take care of everything (for a steep price )
Bottom Line: You are gonna need a new chip (or have badflash fix yours). Unless you wanna risk damaging the board and voiding the warranty, I'd have someone else with BIOS chip replacement experience do it for you.
My suggestion: Get ABIT to fix it.

No need to be shipping anything anywhere at this point in time.
That means you are able to boot. What you can do is disconnect your power cord and then open up your case. Now, disconnect the ATX power header from your motherboard and locate your CMOS jumper. Move that jumper from pins 1&2 to pins 2&3 and wait about 10 seconds, then re-jumper it back to pins 1&2 and then re-connect your ATX power header to the mobo. Close your case back up and plug the power cord back in. Now, fire your system back up but keep dancing on the Delete key - this will get you into your system BIOS (basic in out system) which controls the hardware communication. You can follow your ABIT manual for general setting guidelines or select a default setup and you can also set boot device priorities. Anytime you mess this up to the point of becoming unbootable, you'll have to reset the CMOS (complimentary metal oxide semi-conductor) as described earlier. And, if you can boot as your quote indicates you can, you can also re-flash your BIOS if the bin file you have installed is in fact, incorrect.
i had updated my bios (Abit AV8 Mobo) and on reboot i got the message "error loading operating system"
Now, I've know Jack at Badflash for a number of years and I'd also send you to him if you develop a real problem. Fortunately, I don't believe you are in that tough a circumstance - yet.
