I've done (PC) BIOS updates using FreeDos. That works fine. I believe I 
had to disable some CDROM or hard disk drivers in 
config.sys/autoexec.bat so the system wouldn't accidentally disable the 
floppy emulation when running from a USB stick.

If that works for you, that's maybe a usable recommendation for the 
Supermicro 1st level support answering catalogue.
