S5000PAL Won't Boot After BMC Update

I updated the BMC to version 0.65, or tried, on my S5000PAL using a DOS boot disk and the DOS Update from Intel's website. The update appears to have failed - the system will not boot in normal mode now.

If I set the BMC Force Update jumper, it will boot. I can then try to reflash the .65 update (I've also tried to revert to .63 and .62). The Boot block and PIA appear to update just fine, but the OpCode block does not - it is always 0.00!

I have tried the following flags, as per this program: fwpiaupd -u -b -o -pia -ni -p -noverify -nopc ALBMC65.hex

Please tell me someone knows how to fix this!

Thanks,

Jim

What is your BIOS version? Update to 98 if you haven't done so. Also, what's your previous BIOS/BMC version? Did you see any error message during BMC update?

Can you update the f/w in the forced update mode..

To my knowledge, Opcode should update while updating the f/w in forced update mode.

The same problem, but with S5000PSL. No normal boot only in "BMC Force Update". Updating to any version of BMC have no result on OpCode version after AC power off. During update accurs "Error 05: Update failure".
