Don't upgrade past v2.28 or it will take the PC over 2 minutes to restart from a warm boot.
You use the W7 BIOS update file and an info page will open.
Follow the instructions to update the BIOS using the F10 Setup BIOS flashing method.
You will need a USB flash drive. Format it with the FAT32 file system.
At the bottom of the F10 Setup flash instruction section, there will be a blue View Contents of DOS flash file link to click on.
Copy the contents of that folder to your USB flash drive. Just the files, not the folder.
Restart the PC, tap the ESC key to get the menu of options. Select the F10 setup option and press the Enter key.
Select the File tab, Flash system ROM command. Select the USB flash drive.
The PC should 'see' the files on the flash drive. Follow the on-screen instructions to update the BIOS.
You can find v2.28 under the Previous Versions section of the latest BIOS update.

The instruction link you posted is what you want it is from the wrong file but the instructions are the same for all of the HP Pro business desktops...you want to read this section...
Startup Menu / F10 Setup BIOS Flashing
The HP Business Desktop systems provide a BIOS upgrade option through both the Startup Menu and the F10 Setup utility using the "Flash System ROM" feature. Reboot the PC and press the Escape key to display the Startup Menu. Use the arrow keys to select Utilities, and then select the Flash System ROM option. Alternatively, reboot the PC and press F10 to access the BIOS Setup utility. In the File menu, select Flash System ROM. Either method requires that removable media be present (USB storage or data CD) that contains the BIOS binary image file in the root directory. The binary image file can be found in the DOS Flash folder and is named xxx_MMmm.bin where "xxx" is the BIOS family, "MM" is the major version number, and "mm" is the minor version number. To create a CD for updating the BIOS, use a blank CD-R or CD-RW disk on a system with a CD-RW or DVD+RW drive, and write the binary to the disk using any CD-burning software (Windows 7 and Vista support burning data CDs without additional software). If a BIOS Setup password has been set, the password will be required before being able to access the "Flash System ROM" menu. The user is notified when the process is completed. The new BIOS code will not take effect until the PC is restarted.
