    I don't think that's possible. I recall trying that when this happened back then, without success.
    Note that the BIOS update itself was successful, but I don't know why this happens. I don't think it's the BIOS patch, because it happened with older versions too. How do I update the BIOS without any utilities?

    I think I'm pretty screwed. Do you have any suggestions to get me out of this mess?

    What happens when you create a boot option?

    The only option I get under "Boot" is "Delete boot option".
    When I click that, there is no boot option to be selected. The "Create boot option" is not even there any more.

    --EDIT

    Weirdly enough the HDDs and the DVD drive are recognized under Advanced > SATA Configuration .
    SATA Mode Selection is set to AHCI.

    This problem could be solved with pulling the cmos battery, but on a laptop that will be difficult.

    Could you flash the BIOS to an earlier version?

    Doesn't removing the CMOS just reset the BIOS? I assume the "Restore to default" does the same thing? (Which doesn't work)

    I've put the 205 BIOS on a USB stick and used the included Easy Flash Utility to downgrade, but it gives a "Build Date is too old!!" error. I can't think of any other options to downgrade.

    Yes it does, but pulling the cmos battery often helps a bit better.

    Do you have recovery media from where you can boot off to access command prompt?

    I've inserted the Windows 8.1 recovery disc, but unfortunately I can not boot from that one either. (Since no boot options to select from)

    That is strance, when inserting any media a boot option should be added.
    Are you sure the BIOS flash was done properly succesful?

    It's very strange indeed. I don't the BIOS patch itself is corrupted, but that something might be wrong with the BIOS chip on the motherboard itself. The reason I suspect this, is because this is the second time a BIOS flash results in this issue. (Both different BIOS version, and Windows reinstalled several times between two flashes) I'm not sure though.

    And I assume the flash was done successfully, since it got to 100% and then gave me the "will now shutdown" message, after which the laptop shut down automatically. (And in the BIOS it shows version 210 now)

After viewing the .dmp file using BlueScreenView, it said the BSOD was the result of ntoskrnl.exe. Since ntoskrnl.exe is a critical system process, I didn't think that that would be the root cause, so I'm posting my .zip files. Thanks for helping. 63529
