As with regular (ie DOS flashing) the same holds true: do this on a system that is as clean as possible so very early in the install process. Personally, I know things have gotten better, the high casualty rate on online bios updates is because most people will do one on an already unstable system hoping it will fix the errors/slowness they caused in the first place by installing loads of software...
Am I sounding bitter?
No, I mean if the virus can find out bios model/version by itself and change/overwrite/destroy it, without the user knows about.
