This is a question that has only just come to light recently. It seems to only affect the AMD platform but then not all motherboards. It should say on the BIOS update page whether you should "disable DMI data" when running the update on your particular board. I know it's a bit confusing but at least it has come to light now. ;)
BTW would you mind updating your profile to show your location please.
