    I think you loose card mac address.
    -Add one address from device manager at locally administred address if find this option for network card.
    or
    -Find a method to reprogram mac address in BIOS.

    I don't think there is this option for my nic at Device Manager but right click on NIC, properties, advanced tab, property list: network address -> Not Present is checked.
    you mean, in Setup ? there is only one option about, which is Lan Option Rom Enabled/disabled.

    advanced tab, property list: network address -> and enter something like that 000E7B89C4E0
    If works after then that's the problem

    If that works then
    Maybe when flashed you use some switch to program all and that area is blank now
    No in setup,in BIOS file or some flasher have option to specify new mac address.
    like afudos by example
    c:\>afudos /M "MAC_ADDRESS"
    where mac_address is something like in previous example.
    Sometimes you have a sticker on board with original mac address.

    I used first "afud4234 NEWBIOS.230 /U" to check rom ID. It ran like it was flashing but i think it's just the way it is. I remember I got a row with the ID 0AAAA0D something like that. OR should be "afud4234 /uFILENAME.ROM ?
    Anyway, after that I actually flashed "afud4234 NEWBIOS.230 /p /n /c" and reboot.
    So I typed ipconfig, it doesn't show ethernet adapter local connection. How do I see if this adapter lost its MAC address?
    What would happen to NIC/MAC address if I flash original .230 bios ?
    Yeah I boot usb again and afudos has this option to specify new mac address. I should flash anytime or just type afudos /M "mac_address" ?

    Already said
    Put some mac address from device manager,if error code 10 disappear and NIC works then that is the problem.
    After check that is the problem,and only after that try afudos to rewrite mac address

    I remember something about win7 doesn't accept some mac address if it starting with some caracters.

    Problem could be something else and not missing mac address

    Revert to manufacturer BIOS
    see if problem persist.

    Try a live linux cd,use dmesg command and look if you find something related to network problem.
