  1. You shouldn't flash the BIOS unless you are having a problem with incompatible hardware like a CPU that isn't supported out of the box but can be with a BIOS flash. With that out of the way you have to go to the motherboard manufactures website and download the BIOS update onto a USB drive.
  2. Fixed for $4 more.

    Still, if you want that ASRock board you'd go to the ASRock website, find your motherboard model and download the BIOS files. Then follow this: http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/how-to/pc-upgrades/3428662/how-update-your-bios-in-ten-steps/

    If he has a built-in option on the motherboard GUI for updating he could do that; the important thing is that he has to be connected to the internet though.
