If Linux counts as "a more powerful/modern" OS I yet haven't failed to
make a bootable USB key. It may require some brute force like wiping
the entire disk out with zeros and then start from scratch -
partitioning, putting on a MBR, formatting and eventually put Syslinux
on it.

But for updating a BIOS (Free)DOS is fine unless you have one of those
new fancy boards.
