i got an error (-144) on running it, but got around it by copying the ROM file into the usb flash util file and renaming it, then flashing with usb mem card. PITA, but worked out in the end.

If I understand right you copied the BIOS.ROM file from C:\WINDOWS\Temp\WINPHLASH, that was created when you executed the STA06_Win.exe.
But witch "usb flash util file" did you use? An earlier's(DOS) BIOS version?
If so how did you extracted the DOS version and replaced the old with the new BIOS.ROM? What renaming did you do?
Thanks if you can help.
EDIT:Ok, I found it. Post #13
