BIOS Plugin for Bart's PE?

    A few weeks ago the boot drive on my secondary system hosed itself. I tried
    all manner of black magic to get the partition back, but to no avail. Last
    weekend I pulled the drive and put it in another system to pull the files
    off. I reformatted the drive, repartitioned the drive and put the files
    back. The drive still won't boot up in the original machine and Windows sees
    the drive as unformatted. So it would seem that it's a BIOS or other
    hardware issue. I tried to boot up a floppy and flash the BIOS, but the
    floppy is seen as unformatted. I also tried a bootable CD with a 2.88 MB
    floppy image, but the DOS load just hangs halfway through. The MB is too old
    to support a bootable USB device. However, I CAN boot into Bart's PE and run
    applications without problems. So I need to find a WinFlash plugin (or
    equivalent) so I can try flashing the BIOS in Windows. I've searched without
    any success, so a link or alternative suggestion would be appreciated.
