Most motherboard manufacturers provide BIOS updates free of charge on the support section of their web sites, I have never encountered a situation where you have had to pay for a BIOS update.

I sure hope it was worth the money, did it fix the issues you were experiencing that made you go out and buy this update?

Just because you cannot see any difference in the menu structure of the BIOS does not mean that nothing has changed.

Have you actually tried to re-activate Windows when you were prompted to? Now that it has de-activated itself even if you restored the previous BIOS (assuming you kept a backup of the original flash image before upgrading) Windows will remain in an unactivated state, so either way you will need to re-activate. May as well keep the new BIOS you paid for...
