Try the manual boot cd version of the firmware. It seems to be compatible with a wider variety of systems than the windows updaters.

In case you can boot your system with DVD disk you could use a DVD. Or you can even prepare USB pendrive using UNetbootin tool

The loader is linux based but then it enters updater's FreeDOS based environment (070H firmware).
