Windows 7 Ultimate (x64) SP1

I flashed the firmware on mine and now it won't boot anymore. I've tried every version I could find but still no good. I have to say tho, outside of benchmarks I can't tell the difference between running it on SATA 6GB/s and SATA 3GB/s

UPDATE: I bought a new card and it boots!
