Sorry not the bios but through a bootable program.
PC BOOTABLE TOOLBOX

I'm having a bit of trouble installing the firmware through the bootable toolbox. I have made the .iso and pasted it in a fat32 formated usb stick but it won't load. There was a message saying that it couldn't boot the software and I don't really know why. Anyways I tried installing the firmware using the windows installer but it couldn't detect the drive even though I could still browse its contents.

Copy and paste doesn't work in this situation you need to mount the .iso to the USB device

Oh you said it "pasted it" like you just cut and pasted into your USB.

You have to make the drive bootable before it will load.

I didn't mean to say about the pasting part. The iso was installed on the usb stick through software which then makes the stick bootable.

Yea, but what software? The software may not have worked right.

I used Universal USB Installer 1.9.5.2 and it was recommended by the OCZ support guide.
