That's not even remotely possible. Vista is an operating system, a
form of software. A computer's BIOS is stored on the CMOS chip on the
computer's motherboard, and is completely separate form any software
installed on the computer.

Very, very few BIOS flashing utilities run from within Windows, as this
is a very dangerous thing to do. Have you carefully and precisely
followed the instructions provided by the computer's motherboard
More importantly, why are you trying to flash your computer's BIOS?
What specific problem are you experiencing that the motherboard
manufacturer says will be fixed by the Bios flash? If there is no
specific problem, don't flash the BIOS; it's far to easy to render a
computer completely unbootable by applying an incorrect BIOS "update."
