In the situation when you need to update BIOS to let your new CPU work and you (and your friends) do not have another CPU that would be able to start the system, you have to pay for service to so called “experts”. In my case prices varied from 20 to 50 Euro… for this 5-minuets work O_o. New CPUs have the same price…

Solution is quite simple actually. You just have to buy new suitable CPU 😉 I’ve purchased the cheapest model for 25 Euro, used it for a 5 minuets to update BIOS and then just returned it in the perfect condition to the warranty department of the shop where I’ve bought it. Now I have BIOS updated and my 25 Euro back. The only expenditures were for the public transportation – about 1 Euro.
