I need help flashing bios with usb flash drive

Hello, I'm trying to flash my Bios with a usb flash drive. My laptop is a Toshiba Satellite L305D-S5928

I know how to boot from the usb but I do not know to make the flash stick a bootable drive. All i could find for flashing my bios is an iso. and i dont have a disk to burn it to so usb is my only option. My bios has a virus and will not let me instal windows. Im hoping that it will let me flash so i dont have to replace it. Can some one please tell me how and what drivers i need to usb flash my bios ?

The instructions here are for a botched bios recovery, but it explains how to make a USB flash drive bootable and has the links to files that will make it easier to do.
