Don't flash a BIOS unless you are experiencing an issue and the new BIOS can solve it. NEVER interrupt a BIOS flash, will corrupt the BIOS and leave you dead in the water unless the mobo has two BIOS chips. Pick a time when it is very unlikely you'll loose electrical power, better yet, running with a battery backup UPS.
Use the EZ Flash Utility and a thumb drive FAT formatted.

BIOS updates, .rom or .cap, require the thumb drive to be formatted using the File Allocation Table (FAT) format. Its a way to format a device to get it ready to store data. The format you are probably familar with is NTFS (New Technology File System) used on most HDDs.
