I got server with Intel server board S5000PSL and Windows Server 2008 R2 and I need to update my BIOS.
I download "Intel One Boot Flash Update Utility" from Intel Download Center, install it and when I try to watch my BIOS version "flashupdt -i" I got a message "*ERROR* Unable to communicate with the flashUD.sys driver. The driver may not be installed."
What I must do to make this program works correct?
I checked the downloads page and I didn't realise the S5000PSL does not have EFI BIOS updates. Looks like your only options are OBF or DOS update.
So try DOS on USB: http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=19672&ProdId=2305&lang=eng&OSVersion=... http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=19672&ProdId=2305&lang=eng&OSVersion=...
When installing the OFU driversmake sure you install them from a command prompt and navagate to the driver location. The Install,bat is exspecting a path so the command is INSTALL \
Also I would install all the OFU drivers for BIOS\BMC\FRUSDR \syscfg and SELVIEW.
(Just seems to work smother if all the drivers are loaded.)
