BIOS upgrades are generally a hairy affair and should only be done when absolutely necessary. If it fails, it may very well turn your motherboard into an expensive paper-weight.

- Make sure you have a backup of your existing BIOS.
- Make CERTAIN it's successful before rebooting.
- If it fails, keep trying until it succeeds.
