I agree with Enthusiast - stay away from BIOS flashes unless it's unavoidable! They can hurt more than they may help!
Here's some links about the STOP error 0x8e:http://aumha.org/win5/kbestop.php#0x8ehttp://www.osronline.com/ddkx/ddtools/bccodes_3llz.htmhttp://www.osronline.com/ddkx/ddtools/bccodes_59k7.htm
Since you're in the process of getting the motherboard drivers - this could be the cause of this error. See if installing them fixes it.
In the procedure that I use for fixing BSOD errors - flashing the BIOS comes just before buying new hardware to replace questionable hardware. And it's way, way after the many troubleshooting procedures that we can use.
Then, if I do consider a BIOS flash, I read the information about what the flash fixes. If it doesn't address the problem that I'm experiencing - then I don't do it.
