Eclipse SLI BIOS

I need to update the BIOS for the MSI Eclipse SLI in this box - I've got a Logitech Illuminated Keyboard, and when it is plugged in, the POST takes upwards of 2 minutes recognising USB devices and even when it boots, the keyboard doesn't work. (It does work if it is plugged in post-POST, though.) BIOS 1.3 (listed here) claims to fix issues with this exact keyboard, hence my desire to upgrade. Unfortunately, since I'm running Vista x64, Live Update doesn't work (even if it did, it is apparently not recommended for BIOS updates). The BIOS is not downloadable at the page linked above - since apparently the update is only allowed with Live Update (which doesn't work). Apparently someone else had the same problem and links were found (linked from here), but those links are now dead. I tried the automated download with the Forum Flashing tool, but that reports the BIOS as not yet released. Does anyone know how to get this BIOS updated?
No problem, just avoid using M-Flash to update the BIOS with your currently early BIOS version.
