I think bios is not OS dependent but the installer is. That is for the latest (which is version 1.21) the installer is for Win 8 (32/64 bit) only. Based on this info, I think you can used it to update your bios if you have not done it before.

Nobody can either since there is no installer for Win 8.1 only for Win 8 (bios  version 1.21).

That is because your current bios version is 1.2.1 also. Check it out.

 

If you really want to reinstall you have to enable bios flash back in the bios. Note: I would not be doing this as much as possible.

Set Hotkey mode to enable in the bios under Configuration. It is actually enabled by default.
