System firmware update package usage instructions

You can update this package using one of the following methods:
 - Windows* or Linux* operating system using Intel One Boot Flash Update (Intel OFU) V14.1 Build 19 or later
 - Windows* Preboot Execution Environment (WinPE*)

To update from Windows* and Linux* or operating systems using the Intel One Boot Flash Update Utility (Intel OFU)

You can download the Intel One Boot Flash Update utility. It's part of the BIOS, Firmware Update & Configuration Utilities for Windows and Linux. Refer to Intel OFU user guide about the details of installation and usage of Intel OFU.

Use Intel OFU to update system firmware by the following steps:
- Install Intel OFU on Windows or Linux system.
- Download the latest firmware update package 
- Unzip package to a folder.
- Run the following command in the Windows* command line/Linux terminal window:
  :\flashupdt -u  \flashupdt.cfg
                      
To update from Windows Preboot Execution Environment (WinPE)

You can insert the System Firmware Update Package to Windows PE customized image for creating a bootable Windows PE CD. You're able to update system firmware from customized WinPE CD by the following steps:

  1. Boot server with customized WinPE CD.
  2. Run the WinPE_x64_Update.batscript (Name may vary depending on your own customization).
     
    Note: The Intel OFU utility is case sensitive. Therefore, when you transfer the Firmware Update Package using USB flash drive from a Microsoft Windows system to a Linux environment, you must first extract under the Linux* environment. Otherwise, you will need to mount the USB flash drive manually with the vfat option under Linux to avoid conversion from upper case to lower case and vice versa.
  3. To make Intel OFU utility run properly under x64 OS, you have to read Intel OFU release notes on known issues for Intel OFU installation. In this SFUP package, Intel only provides batch file WinPE_x64_Update.bat for WinPE2.1/3.0 64 bit solution as an example. Refer to the White Paper-Intel Server Utilities Procedure for WinPE.pdf white paper for details on building your own customized WinPE CD.
  4. Windows PE 2.0 - built from Windows Vista SP1 EM64T
  5. Windows PE 2.1 - built from Windows Vista SP1 or Windows Server 2008, EM64T
  6. Windows PE 3.1 - built from Windows Server 2008 R2, EM64T
  7. Microsoft IPMI driver is loaded by default from WinPE CD, if you want to use 

Intel IPMI driver instead of MS IPMI driver for firmware update. You can un-install the
Microsoft IPMI driver by:
                Devicesetup.exe ¨Cv remove *IPI0001
                Note: IPI0001 is the device ID for Microsoft IPMI driver.
