Yes, it should ask if you want to backup your existing bios into a .bin file
of some kind, if it all goes t-up, as long as you can boot up onto your
flash disk you can restore the bios. As for if it doesn't post, old boards
usually had a failsafe in them that they would boot in a "safemode" of sorts
after three failed post attempts, designed for people who accidently fried
their bios'es by flashing the wrong one.

But if your careful you shouldn't need any of that :)
