that would not work over here in the UK where 99% of high street PC stores are PC World. Not sure what the situation is in the US but I'm pretty sure it's similar.

That sucks man. Sorry I can't help you. Best I can recommend is to flip through your phonebook and see if there's any shops close to you and call them to see if they can flash the bios for you.

OP, if you end up unable to find a shop to flash your BIOS, then buy a Pentium G620 then sell it or give it to a relative or friend.

Celeron G540 would be a better option as it's quite a bit cheaper ($50 vs $70)...except he can't afford either of them.
