I've found this on the Evga forums. Follow this: Bios flash & collection (P31), FAQ and OC-guide, first post. Hope this helps.

yeah, i saw that also. waited 1 hour watching the "please wait!" message, couldn't type anything in either. so i crossed my fingers and held my breath and hit the power button. nothing seems to have happened. good or bad. i guess i wasn't meant to update my bios today. thnx just the same.
