    Switch to the other (working) BIOS and restart..Then move the switch to the borked BIOS position and either flash it again with 2.06 (the latest as of now) or the previous version 2.05 and roll from there..Don't flash a working BIOS, keep it to fall back on.
     
    Or are both BIOS 1 and 2 borked now?

    I believe that the Primary BIOS chip is soldered to the Classy and the Secondary is the removeable chip..The Primary BIOS chip is right above the Secondary, take a look see.

    The BIOS chips are physically the same..If you could flash the Classy BIOS to the FTW chip and swap it in, then I don't see why it wouldn't work..Or it might work without flashing it, I really don't know..You can always Contact EVGA and get a BIOS chip from them.
