XW4600 BIOS Update 1.15 to 1.18 stops Windows 7 booting

I have an XW4600 that had BIOS 1.15. Windows 7 was failing to recognise the CD drive in the machine, and so when checking support i realised there was a later BIOS available. Now Windows 7 refuses to boot, the repair and restore options have failed, it gets to the Windows 7 boot screen and 1 second later the machine simply reboots. The repair suggested a driver problem, but does anyone know how i can get the old BIOS back onto the machine and where it can be downloaded from?
