Default Trying to revert back to old BIOS thru bootable flash drive

The original problem that happened after i updated my BIOS startup problems. It is now not even booting up properly.

I have a working flash drive that is now bootable. I put whatever files i downloaded from MSI's website of my old BIOS version, 1.9. I am currently 1.B. I used HP's bootable device utility to make the flash drive bootable. It used Win 98 DOS. My BIOS file is an AMI version, btw. The problem im facing is what exactly to type into the command prompt to get the BIOS file to work after i restart my PC. Can anyone help me out on this problem asap?

IT WORKED! Thx! Sound card was also causing major issues now. It was probably the main reason i was having start up issues. Took it out n it works like a charm.
