You should find the previous BIOS version on the manufacturer's website and use it to flash the current bios. Be careful. If you wreck the BIOS and can't reinstall it your computer will no longer be usable.
Try downgrading the BIOS to a previous version then load setup defaults. After that update it again with the latest BIOS version. If it does the same thing then the bios package that you downloaded could be corrupt, you may need to download it from a different location.
The first thing I would try is to clear CMOS. Either set the jumper on the motherboard to do this, or even remove the battery, and wait half an hour or so. When installing a new CPU, and even RAM, you should always clear CMOS.
Your flash utility should have stored a backup of the previous bios image. Fire it up and see if there is a restore function.
If there is not (but I am fairly confident there is) you can order a new bios chip from the manufacturer for $15 or less...with whatever version you would like on it. I find it odd that it would not recognize your processor type.
Typically I would not flash a bios unless there is a problem in the first place.
