I've flashed the BIOS from Windows numerous times and had no problems whatsoever. Key is to make absolutely sure you follow every instructions your manufacturer tells you and be patient. A lot of times you will turn off the machine or something when the process isn't entirely complete.

Also, make sure you have a UPS that can last long enough to finish should the power go out.

Technically they screwed it up by having a windows based bios flash that is crap.

yep, good stuff. Its a good mobo, some of the utilities excluded.

Are you flashing up to 404? use the bios based reflash programme, read up before hand, and everything should be dandy. Good luck!
