Updating bios on dell
However, none of the sites advertising replacement MOBs specify what the BIOS is or the revision level that is supported.
For this reason I want to get hold of a replacement MOB, or compatible (i.e BTX form factor), possibly with 4 Gb of memory while I'm at it, and the latest BIOS.
If you built your own computer, a BIOS update would come from your motherboard vendor.
These updates can be “flashed” onto the BIOS chip, replacing the BIOS software the computer came with with a new version of the BIOS.
Choose the form factor of the servers you are working with — for me that’s “Rack mount” and I unchecked “Tower” and “Blade chassis.” Click “next.” 4.
Pick “Linux” for the OS (you can go back and create a new repository later if you like this tool), then move on and select the server models you are dealing with. I chose “ONLY include most recent and custom bundle(s)” because I didn’t see the point in downloading old stuff.
It turns out that the BIOS itself is able to extract the firmware images from such executables and to apply them.
