  You can use FreeDOS.  If you don't have unetbootin download for windows or linux.  You can download freedos from unetbootin.  Have a usb drive formatted with fat.  Fat 32 might work, I think it varies from drive to drive.  Copy your bios files to root folder of usb drive. Of course boot from usb is required.   My first experience with freedos was helping  someone with an Acer Aspire One that wouldn't boot. It works!
