I think your problem is twofold. You used a third-party non-supported flash utility, and you used the windows flash file. Download the CD rom image BIOs update from the Lenovo webstie, burn it to a disk and reflash your system. It will ask you if you want to update the machine type and serial number, answer yes and enter the information as it appears on the case of the A70.
