Archerr, what did u try?, I don't know, I can't help u! as per 3.5 floppy, check how u connected the ribbon cable.Pin#1 on mother board to red or colored wire on ribbon(pin#1) the pin#1 [red or colored] that goes to the floppy is usually connected FACING towards the power connector [usually 4 pins in line, almost always on the left side of floppy. the connection to h/d(hard drive)on the board looks the same.Usually h/d#1 & h/d#2 are side by side and the floppy connector usually is a distance away by itself.
Get a bootable 3.5"[with ANY operating system] and boot up with the floppy, you'll will know when it works.Then get back with" Tried that still nothing..."

Flashed the BIOS on this Board with the wrong ROM File... I tried AMI Boot Recovery Thru Floppy, USB and CD... still wont read any of them... Any Suggestions??

Download the correct ROM from the manufacturer and re-flash.... Unless you know someone with the same motherboard, or can go into the shop that you bought the board from, then you can copy their rom and flash it to your BIOS. I had that happen to me a few times too...Next time copy the BIOS before flashing over it.

You seem to have tried everything. Is it possible for you to reload your motherboard drivers, particularly the IDE and SATA drivers. Maybe one of the SW drivers got corrupted. Hope this works.

Failure of both (dual) bios after updating

Sorry bud, when you flashed the BIOS it obviously did not like it..Nine long continuous beeps is ROM BIOS checksum error. Another words you need a new CMOS chip as you cannot backdate a flash BIOS. You can't boot from any disk because the boot process never even gets to the part where you can use your system. BIOS is first when you start up and if you can't get by it then nothing will work. The only advice is use this as a good learning experience and make a backup of your BIOS in the future. Good luck..don't shoot the messenger. Please rate this solution before you log out.

Can't change any settings in BIOS on Abit At7-MAX2 model KT400-8235

It is possible that the bios is damaged. You ran the flash utility correctly by what you posted. It would be worth it. Most companies chargh $5.00 us. Can't beat that.
