Description

The Intel® Ethernet Flash Firmware Utility (BootUtil) is a utility that you can use to program the PCI option ROM on the flash memory of supported PCI and PCIe*-based Intel® Network Adapters and to update configurations.

BootUtil replaces older utilities and provides the functionality of the older Intel Boot Agent, IBAUTIL; iSCSI Remote Boot, ISCSIUTL; LANUTIL; and FLAUTIL utilities that were found in the PROBOOT, ISBoot, and, PROEFI web packs.

BootUtil supports all the adapters supported by the previous utilities.

Refer to bootUtil.txt and the user guide (index.htm) for information about using this utility.

The image file BootIMG.FLB is extracted to the chosen path under \APPS\BootUtil.

You can find image version information in .\APPS\BootUtil\iv.txt.

This software download replaces the utilities and documentation found in PROBOOT.exe, ISBoot.exe, and PROEFI.exe.
