Used afudos ver 2.11 and renamed bios to p5kr0605.rom (edit:btw 703 works too). Booted with a msdos formated usb(by the way from all the files you need to delete to make space don't delete command.sys) then did a
afudos /n /ip5kr0605.rom
(the i is not a typing mistake, forces the rewrite, without /n confirms bios does not match mb). Anyway i just wanna tell you it worked for me too. I sweated a bit when it wouldn't restart on ctrl alt del in dos, but forced restart, set up ahci in enhanced config, and that was it! (don't be scared if it does not detect drives at first, enter setup and change the sata config either to enhanced-ahci or compatible-ide). Thanks for the help !
Results - rock stable at the time of the edit (5 months difference)
-sata config - enhanced - IDE - does not detect any drives; AHCI - fully working (speeds up the loading process, general gui response improoved) on win/leo; Raid - never bothered to check (shouldn't work as the chipset is actually ich9 not the ich9r on p5kr); IDE works if sata config is set to Compatible - IDE (useful for win install, then update to ahci);
-need to install drivers for the p5kr now, some of the p5k drivers are needed ( realtek ), but utils don't. In Windoze AI Suite needs to be p5kr, reports temps lower (i might be wrong) than the bios(35 - vss 43 on bios); AI nap has some errors (mostly works). Also it is my impression that the coolers run at slightly higher speed (can't check that, seems to be a little louder).
-boot is way more beautiful, if you disable jmicron on bios, steps directly from asus picture to os bootloader, no msgs whatsoever;
-stable config, no problems of any kind.
-EDIT 9.08.2009: pain in the ass to install Windows 7 RTM - installs very slowly, then loops in a error reboot
Edit 2013: This wonderful fellow edited the bios, so you just have to reboot with a fat32 flash containing the rom and use the onboard ez flash to update
