If you want to experiment, then Google for making a WinPE boot disk (or USB). You need Windows install media for this, but the version really does not matter.
Once you boot from that, you are in a Windows environment, and the BIOS utilities should run OK. You will have to copy the softpaq file to a USB stick and then try installing in inside WinPE. That might work.
