Few Days Back While updating to Android M, My zenfone 2 551 2gb(Rooted-was on Russian Bear Rom) got Hard Bricked due to wrong flashing procedure.
Symptoms : 1.Getting only Asus Screen(rebooting after 5min)
2. No fastboot, No recovery, None keys Combination Worked.
The only thing was left to follow xFSTK tutorial : http://forum.xda-developers.com/zenfone2/general/guide-brick-soft-hard-bricked-zenfone-2-t3284256

Problems Faced : 1. Moorefield was showing only few second.---After installing intelSoc Driver. To install/detect moorefield--connect phone via cable, pess power button for 10 sec(it vl get switched off completely) and then press power button for 4-5 sec--and let moorefield driver to get install.

2.Continue to OS problem : To solve this , use ifwi.bin from the mm zip , then it vl not show error.

After that fastboot interface would be seen with serial number 01234....
download raw firmware load it with asus flash tool, it vl execute some command and vl keep flashing , close it after 15-20min.
Restart ur bootloader , the actual serial key would be displayed.

After that flash these via adb(these files should be from mm zip)
fastboot flash splashimage splashimage.img
fastboot fastboot flash droidboot.img
fastboot flash boot boot.img
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img

then restart to recovery and flash mm via adb sideload.
hope this helps.
I was able to fix my phone by this.
