    Exact processor you have is usually irrelevant when it comes to BIOS flashing. Its the make and model/version of the BIOS itself that is a major factor. Hands down, DOS flashing is the safest. Prepare and format a USB flash drive for booting from DOS, so that you can flash safely and not brick your system. Unless you have an older system, or one you built yourself, you probably don't have a floppy drive. And with some of these newer systems using 4 megabyte and 8 megabyte BIOSes, a floppy is useless! :p
