BIOS-Update for S3000AHLX

i have server with cpu intel xeon 3210 and mainboard is called s3000ahlx

I think the name S3000AH also refers to S3000AHLX by intel. This is the BIOS-Update program:

I am getting the error flashupdt.cfg not found. I really don't know where to find and get it. I tried everything like installing flashupdt und setting up syscfg.

in english: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/en/download/16926/Intel-Sever-Board-S3000AH-BIOS-Firmware-Update-Co...

this is by far the most complex bios-update i have ever seen. had to read 2 manuals, usually it's just a click. or a file to load in the bios, or something for FreeDOS.

Be very careful with those 3rd party driver sites.   you never know what payload the packages you download are carrying.

Yes, of course! But I don't mind really. It's an old mainboard with old CPU Xeon 3120 2x2 GB DDR2 RAM, not even DDR3. Whatever I watch on xvideos the hacker has to watch too.

 

It's just, I got sad when I learned that CPU's and mainboards can't be recycled. From then on I said, whoever gives even totally exotic PC's or servers to me, I update the hell out of every part, even the firmware of the CD-DVD-drive and put everything inside a computer needs (total capacity of RAM, a nice graphic card, an SSD with minimum 120 GB for operating system, 20 € now (sep 2020, no dram needed, only cheap stuff), I install Windows 10 on it and maybe Linux Mint, I check for updates once a month) I also low-level-format any data on hard disks and make them swap for Windows and Linux. sometimes I need a S-ATA to IDE Adapter for 8 €. It's a great gadget. You can connect any SSD or any drive with S-ATA to the IDE-port on the mainboard. It's way cheaper than using an SSD with IDE-port on it.

 

It's like a hobby and I feel good about it.

btw it has these slots:

 

Intel Adaptive Slot 6 (can be used as PCIe x8 easily but difficult in PCIe x16)
PCI-X
PCIe x4 (i can put a pcie x1 graphic card but the are expensive and the pcie x16 graphic cards are cheaper and have more power)
PCI
PCI

 

how can i use the first slot intel adaptive slot 6 as pcie x16. wth so many slots why? totally propietary pcie x16 is the best!

 

where can i find graphic card for pci-x?
