To clarify, I don't believe I interrupted the flash process. I had opened the flash utlility but had not yet opted to "flash the bios now". I was at the stage where it reminds you to make sure all other programs are closed.
Actually, you did. I did the same exact thing to mine. I thought the computer had locked up, as I didn't start the process yet, but it had actually started and in shutting down my computer I corrupted the BIOS. However, using the recovery utility and a borrowed USB floppy drive I was able to restore it to life, thanks to this forum. I still have the battery problem that I'm working on, but at least it's not a $450 paperweight anymore. Check out those links!
