so you need to boot from the flash drive to start the update right? if the answer is yes, go into bios with the usb drive plugged in and set it as the primary/first boot device.

The zip file doesn't includes the DOS files required to boot the drive (I believe there would be a licensing issue if it did. Not to mention that you can't just copy system files to a drive to make it bootable). You need to have a thumb drive that has already been formatted to boot with MS DOS 6.22 then you put the contents of the zip file on the thumb drive.
