Important NOTES:

- All updates provided in this package are installed using the embedded uEFI
operating environment only.

- Do not modify any of the script files. The scripts as written will provide
the most reliable update experience.

- If for any reason the System BIOS, BMC Firmware, or FRU&SDR data need to be
re-installed after the initial update has been performed, the package does
include standalone script files that can be run individually. These files


Do NOT use these files until after the system has been updated initially using
the STARTUP.NSH file.

When updating the BMC Firmware using the BMC.NSH update script file, there is
an interaction between the BMC flash and the BIOS USB drivers in this release
which may cause random characters (usually the letter 'e') to appear in the
command line after the BMC update has completed. A reboot after the BMC flash
will clear this error.


To update the system software stack to the versions included in this update
package, the system software stack currently installed on the target server
system MUST meet the following or the update will fail:

- System BIOS - Production version 01.01.0005 or later
- ME Firmware - Production version or later
- BMC Firmware - Production version 1.07.6909 or later

Update Procedure

- Unzip the contents of the update package and copy all files to the root directory on a USB flash drive
- Insert the USB flash drive to any available USB port on the server system to be updated
- Power on the server
- The system will automatically access the uEFI shell and begin the update process.


- If the files were copied to a folder other than the root, Boot the Server to
the uEFI shell. This can be accessed via the BIOS setup utility during
POST or via the Boot Menu accessed during POST.
- Run the command "map -r" in the uEFI shell to mount the USB flash drive
- Run the command "fs0:" to change folders to the USB flash drive. The USB
flash drive may also mount to fs1: depending on other installed devices. The
number of "fs#" is dependent on the result of command "map -r"
- Change folders to the folder holding the update package files and manually
start the "Startup.nsh" script file to start loading all updates

- Reboot the system after the update process has successfully completed

is being loaded. DO NOT power off or reboot the system during this time.
A message will appear on the screen when the backup BIOS image update has
