S1200v3RPS BIOS update

Hi,

About to reinstall my server running on the S1200v3RPS server board and I thought that upgrading the firmware package (BIOS, BMC, SDR etc) at the same time would be a good idea. I went to Intel support pages for the board:

https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/products/71385/server-products/legacy-server-product...

But I did _not_ find any firmware/BIOS files there.

 

My board gives this information during POST:

Primary BIOS Version: S1200RP.86B.02.02.0005

Backup BIOS Version: S1200RP.86B.02.02.0005

BMC Firmware Version: 1.12.7499

SDR Version: SDR Package 1.07

ME Firmware Version: 3.0.5.128

Platform ID: S1200RPS

 

Searching on Intel pages I found that there is a firmware/BIOS upgrade package (version 03.04.0006 ) for the S1200V3RPL/S1200V3RPO/S1200V3RPM boards. It can be found here:
https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/download/17359/intel-server-board-s1200v3rpl-s1200v3rpo-s120...

But that page clearly states:
"Important note: Do not use this package on the Intel® Server Board S1200V3RPS or Intel® Server System R1304RPSSFBN."

 

Searching internet I found (NOT Intel pages) that there is a firmware package available:
"Intel S1200V3RPS Server Board EFI Firmware 03.04.0002P"

But the above was _not_ found on an Intel web page.

 

My questions:
#1. Which is the latest firmware package for the Intel Server Board S1200v3RPS ?

#2. Where can I download this latest firmware package ?

 

Thank you in advance!

 

Best regards,

Peter

Hello PeterMan,


The interactive technical support for the Intel® Server Board S1200V3RPS you have requested has been discontinued. Due to this product being discontinued, Intel Customer Service no longer supports inquiries for it, but perhaps fellow community members have the knowledge to jump in and help.  


You may also find the Discontinued Products website 


https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000018497/server-products.html helpful to address your request. 


Thank you for understanding.


Best regards,

The support for intel board is even worst than china brand asrock.......

 

the product is EOL but the driver and BIOS support and download should able to find out from intel page.....

how can intel just simply removed it.

 

it is not new bug fix request but just driver / bios request download only..........

I have the same mobo and want the drivers as well.  I desperately need 02.01.0002 or else old µcode won't work.

 

This is very annoying that Intel pulls off the files.  I can understand that they stop their phone or online service but pulling the files ?????

 

I have an old Supermicro SoC that I use as a pfSense and all the files are available at Supermicro.

 

Please, anyone at Intel, put those files back,

it seems no problem but actually it is not.

I try upgrade the processor to E3 1276 v3 and system NOT Boot...........  I can stay at E3 1230 V3 only....

don't use those new bios.......

it is so sad intel removed the download page online..........  probably I won't buy any intel server board again.........

it is EOL but they should leave the support page online.........
