Updating BIOS

I know there are plenty of resources online that talk about how to update PC BIOS but what I'm really looking for are personal accounts of those who have experienced doing it themselves. Is the procedure easy and straightforward? Or is it like a no-room-for-error kind of thing where a slight mistake could render a PC unusable? How would you compare BIOS updating to PC reformatting/Windows installation in terms of steps sensitivity? I'm quite comfortable doing the latter (even repeatedly) so I guess I'll be fine with the former if their learning curves are on the same level. If it helps, I'll be doing the procedure on an old desktop (I'm guessing almost a decade old) with Intel Dual-core processor on an ASUS P5K SE-EPU motherboard.

From my own experience, don't update the BIOS in Windows 10(done it once in Windows 10, and it didn't go well). IIRC this motherboard have a build in utility in the BIOS where you can update the BIOS by having the new BIOS image on a USB-stick, and then you can program it from there, and i recommend you do it from that BIOS utility.

Thanks for your response Super Mod J. H. Rasmussen! I'll have a look at that BIOS utility and how the process goes updating it through there. By the way, I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit.

If you incorrectly flash the motherboard bios you might have trouble starting the PC as far as I know. But it shouldn't be relatively difficult if you just follow a good set of instructions. I think the main thing is just flashing the correct bios to the correct motherboard and not mixing up board model to correct bios version. I had to flash a board so it could run my amd-fx 8350e which only used 70watts tdp. The process went pretty smoothly for me but I just follow some easy instructions to do it. Good luck mate.
