BIOS Checksum Error after failed BIOS update attempt

I attempted to update the BIOS ROM on my P5N32-E SLI. The update gave an error claiming that the file was different from the BIOS. After reboot, I'm getting a checksum error, indicating that I've damaged the BIOS:

Drive A error. System Halt

It's 2016, so I don't have a floppy drive. Is there any other way to fix this problem, or flash the bios without a floppy drive?

    An option would be ordering a BIOS chip on ebay and replacing the board's one.
    Not sure if inserting the board's DVD and starting the system would trigger BIOS restore.
    Try also clearing the CMOS (unplug the power cord and remove the CMOS battery for a minute).
