Do old Motherboard Bios run Windows XP ?

Is it possible to upgrade the OS from Win Me to XP on an Asus A7A266 (about 3-4 years old probably ) withought having to flash the Bios (Scary!)?

Mobo has the original rev 1.0 bios and I don't know if it has to be updated to run XP ?

(Would prefer to avoid the Bios update and risk killing the mobo).

Yes it is, my other pc uses the same motherboard and runs fine with XP. If you use the ASUS live update you can update the bios via Windows without messing about with boot disks.
