Before flashing from within Windows make sure to go into the bios and load Setup or Safe defaults, then save and exit. You do NOT want to be overclocked when flashing. Make sure that you remove any passwords from the bios and unplug ALL of your USB and Firewire devices. Ideally you should be using a PS/2 keyboard and/or mouse, but you might be able to get away with using usb ones (not recommended though).
After the flash, go into the bios and load safe/setup defaults, save and exit, then shut the system completely off. Now power it up, enter the bios, and make whatever changes you need to make.
EVGA may have some other specifics in their instructions as well that you should follow. There should be a readme file in the archive you download.
