Updating my BIOS firmwarentel® Server Board S1200BTS. I


Hi I recently bought a Intel® Server Board S1200BTS. In the BIOS it says version S1200BT.86B.01.00.0032.


So I see in the download drivers & updates category you have quite a few updates for this board.  I am going to be running Pfsense and different linux distros on it. How would i go about getting to the latest BIOS firmware? Do i need to flash them in sequence or can i just flash to the latest one? And do i really need any of those functions? 


And also. I have been looking at installing a PCIe 2.0 SSD disk to get harddrive speeds above sata2. Would a SSD on a PCIe disk be bootable? 


And would a PCIe M2 NVMe SSD be supported by the bios? 


Thank you for your help

Hello tkterje,

Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities.

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 helpful to address your request. Thank you for understanding.
