Unable to update firmware on I225-T1

I am trying to update the PXE code on my Intel Ethernet Adapter I225-T1.  The Intel provided BOOTUTIL properly identifies the card but despite me specifying "PXE" code as told by the utility, it claims it is an invalid choice.  Any ideas?

 

See attached screenshot for command entry.

Hi @2dfx,

 

Thank you for posting in Intel Ethernet Communities.

May we suggest you to consider following steps:

To load the image that allows to boot from the PXE, the following procedure for EFI mode needs to be followed:

 

1) Download the file Bootutil.zip.

2) Unzip the file Bootutil.exe.

3) Copy Bootutil.exe to a Bootable USB Stick.

4) Start the server.

5) Select the USB Stick from the Boot Menu.

6) Then type the following commands in the command line:

- bootutil (an overview of available NICs are displayed)
  bootutil -NIC=x -FE (x=a network card port, e.g. NIC=3)

1) Repeat this step for the second NIC (if available).

2) Finally, restart the server.

3) If using with a system it may take you back to the BIOS Menu.

4) Under the BOOT heading of Network Drive BBS Priorities you can now select the NICs of the network card for the above places.

5) Then select the NIC network card in the boot sequence.

6) Finally, save and exit.

 

We also wish to gather some information below for further checking:

1) Model of your motherboard/system

2) Did you encounter this issue previously or this is the first time?

3) Do the NIC or network adapter shown any error / unusual symbol?

4) We need your help to gather the System Support Utility log, steps as following:
