Updating BIOS of S1200SPLR - numbers don't match release notes

Jump to solution

Just got a S1200SPLR board to build a server for a client. CPU is a E3-1240V6. Chassis is an older P4304XXSFCN.

Board specs:

PC:DBS1200SPLR

Version# :H77895-272

MM# :951869

BATCH# :CNQS88B0C0

PBA# :H57532-271

PACK Date: 11 AUG 18

Server boots and I press F2 and get the Setup Page. On that page I see:

IFWI Version: S1200SP.86B.BR.64.2018.16.5.01.1114.SELFBOOT

BIOS Version: S1200SP.86B.03.01.4029.041320180314.FACTORY

If I go into the Main subsection I see for both Primary and Backup:

Version: S1200SP.86B.03.01.4029

Date: 04/13/2018

On the Intel Support web site for the Downloads and Drivers for the S1200SPLR board it lists the latest BIOS as 03.01.0038.

According to the Release Notes for version 03.01.0038 dated June 26, 2018, before you update to 03.01.0038 you have to install bridge BIOS 03.01.2032. Though no where in the release notes is there a mention of the BIOS version, 03.01.4029, that I have on this motherboard.

Since this board was packed in August, which is later that June, do I need to update the BIOS or do I have something new or what?

I need to do something as the fan runs at full speed right now so I figure something needs to be done.

Hello ArtDeKneef,

 

 

I understand the concerned. The number looks weird on the BIOS Versions available. If you check the Download web site:

 

https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/28018/Intel-Server-Board-S1200SP-BIOS-and-Firmware-Update-... https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/28018/Intel-Server-Board-S1200SP-BIOS-and-Firmware-Update-...

 

You will see that the Bridge BIOS or BIOS to be used prior to using the latest one is newer than the latest BIOS.

 

 

Please download and install Version: 03.01.2032 [Bridge] and then install Version: 03.01.0038.

 

 

Then please send us a picture of the BIOS or the BMC Logs for verification.

 

 

If there is anything else we can help please feel free to ask.

 

 

Best regards,

 

 

Henry A.

To follow up on this.

I installed the interim BIOS 03.01.2302 and then installed BIOS .3.01.0038.

Everything is working great.

Here are the pictures showing what I started with and the reason for asking what to do.
