if I am correct, the update probably changed some settings of your BIOS
and therefore the checksum of these setting does not match the one saved
by the BIOS before.

Just hit F1 or F2 when booting to enter the BIOS menu and load the
default settings and save that. The checksum should be rewritten now and
hopefully the error will be gone.
