Beats, thanks a lot for posting your inquire at Intel communities.
Regarding your issue, would you please let me know which BIOS version are you trying to update to?
It is important to tell you that if you are trying to install the latest BIOS version 41, you may need to flash some versions before. Technically going straight to the latest BIOS version shouldn't be a problem, however based on experience, there is always chance.
I recommend you to check the BIOS Update Release Notes on this URL. You will be able to see the fixes and features included on each version. http://downloadmirror.intel.com/24421/eng/FY_0041_ReleaseNotes.pdf
