I have no straight answer but some interesting links to look into...

Note: EasyBoot can easily launch any floppy image (***.img or ***.ima)
You can also modify 'autoexec.bat' to directly execute bios-file in floppy image to flash BIOS
(avoiding the need to use the 'DOS-Prompt' at all)
However, EasyBoot is a 'BOOT-Manager' and not any 'BIOS-flash-utility', but can most likely still be used as the 'manager' to execute the flash-process to BIOS launched from floppy image file (at least from my point of view)
