R2208WTFZSR. BIOS update. Need help.

Hello! Please help me. I am trying to figure out how to install the BIOS correctly.

                                                                                BRANCHES.

In pictures 01 and 02 my version of the BIOS.

     On the site, in the files section, I see two update branches:

1) Intel® Server Board S2600WF Family BIOS and Firmware Update Package for UEFI;

2) Intel® Server Board S2600WF Family BIOS and Firmware Update for Intel® One Boot Flash Update (Intel® OFU) Utility and WinPE*.

First question:

Do I need to install both branches?

---------------------------------------

                                                                                VERSIONS.

Each branch has different versions in ascending order.

My version is 02.01.1009

I don't see a similar version on the site. I looked by date and created myself a list of versions(pic. 03, 04).

1) For the s_fup branch. I started with version 02.01.0009. She has my version in the requirements.

2) For the EFI branch, I started with version 02.01.0010, they also require my version.

Second question:

Did I understand correctly that version 02.01.1009 is equal to version 02.01.0009?

Third question:

if everything is correct, should I install the version in ascending order?

Fourth question:

should I install both branches? If so, what is the order of installing them? Which branch should I install first?

Hello Ex-Machine,


Thank you for contacting Intel Customer Support.

 

I understand that you need assistance updating the BIOS of your system. I will be more than glad to help you today.


Since your system, current BIOS version is 02.01.1009 and the latest BIOS version is 02.01.0013. You can install them in ascending order.


You may want to update your BIOS from version 02.01.1009 to 02.01.1010, then version 02.01.1011 and finally install the latest version

Hi SergioS. Thanks for the answer. I have some questions.

"You may want to update your BIOS from version 02.01.1009 to 02.01.1010, then version 02.01.1011 and finally install the latest version"

I have version 02.01.1009. The site offers 02.01.0010. Requirement 02.01.0009. My version differs from the requirement by one. Second question: you gave a link for updating efi. I don't need the second branch at all?
