If it shows the Windows startup options, then the BIOS flash was a success. However, I suppose the flash has restored the BIOS defaults (including the hard disc access mode). If this is the case, I suggest you search the BIOS for an option called ACHI / Enhanced Mode and set it to IDE / Compatible Mode. Please keep in mind that the option name might differ a bit.
