chances are if it installed ok you dont need to flash the bios.

maybe a windows update would have fixed it.

unless the bios update says it fixes compatibility problems with xp and your hardware,leave as is.

had a look click here

and only update for the 266b said:

"Add more options for Vcore adjustment.Combine Awdflash.exe into system BIOS (user can press "Alt_F2" to excute Awdflash.exe in POST"

nothing about xp compatability.
