I'm trying to update the BIOS for my server running S5000SPL and I've installed the flashupdt utility but when i try to type "flashupdt -i" in a Command Promt runned as Administrator but get the following error:

The server board could not be identified for correct operations of this update

*ERROR* *** No error information available ***

I don't understand why :/

Seems like the IPMI driver was not properly installed. Did you reboot the system after installing OFU? Which version of Windows are you running? You may want to check Device Manager for IPMI device, under System Devices.
