Unfortunately, the only way to do it is with a Sandy Bridge CPU.

If you know someone that has one, you can use that, or you can just buy a very cheap SB Pentium to do it.

Can you borrow a Sandy Bridge CPU from a friend?

If not, you will have to take it to a computer shop, and ask if you can borrow a CPU to update your BIOS, or Purchase a cheap SB CPU (and possibly return it after update, but personally I would keep it)
