I got this board to work after a long timeout with the stock BIOS it came with, but updated it and now it won't POST with this chip at all. Before it had a bunch of microcode errors in the log. I tried downgrading the BIOS to the earliest version available, but it still won't POST with the ES CPU. I think Intel locked it out, and the original BIOS version that the board shipped with is nowhere to be found.

Please help, I tried using MMTool to look around, but the CPU tab is empty.

Thanks in advance.
