I am not 100% certain how to do it for your MB, but for mine I just downloaded the BIOS file in a zipped format, extracted the zip to a USB thumbdrive, booted into the BIOS, and did the upgrade from the ASUS BIOS update utility inside the BIOS.

I've flashed my bios to 1502 and it solve the missing cpu when enabling

I recover also 512 meg of ram. I'm now at 7684296 of 8192000 installed.
I've tried to disable all unneeded device but it change nothing.
