VROC Key no longer working


I have a M50FCP1UR212 Intel server that we recently purchased. 


We purchased the VROC Key for the server and all seems to have worked well on the factory BIOS. I was able to configure the VROC to RAID1 as expected with the Key. 


We then updated the server's BIOS to version R01.01.0004 and now the VROC key is no longer registering in the BIOS and it is not allowing us to set the RAID back to RAID1. Only RAID0. 


Called Intel support and they say that the server only supports the software VROC key even though it worked prior to the BIOS update and the board accepts a physical key. 


They do not have a downloadable option of an older version of the BIOS to downgrade back to the original version of the BIOS either. 


Is there anything we can do other than purchasing the software key?


The hardware key is a VROCISSDMOD 


Thanks in advance.
