Could perhaps be more specifiec?
what more info do you need?

what i'd need is the exact bios version he flashed it to. and what the old one was, i hope he saved the old one before he messed with the bios, you could perhaps flash it back using a floppy. if you can get to read the floppy disk again. also, the model of the motherboard, i can try to look it up using the bios string itself, if you can get it to that point. never mind the bootup. the other option is to contact your friend and see if he has a manual. pc chips is normally in with elpina. so if you can find a number such as:
http://www.pcchips.com/index2.html on that page, it'd help. that page is for manuals. and if it's older, they're going to hide it somewhere. it may not be available even if it's too old. you can try to get a new bios chip. if you can, off of the exact type board, although that being unlikely, there are a few companies that will be able to sell you a new chip with the correct bios and for that, you have to pay a nominal fee, if they can do it. providing it's a removable bios chip. if soldered, you're out of luck.
i had one go out on me and i had a $30 charge for the new bios chip. however, they were in the bay area and i could drive down to pick it up, so with you, shipping might be involved.
