  • Hello Ahmed,

    You can update Bios using Lifecycle Contoller (LC). LC can be launched by pressing F10 in Bios Post. Once GUI is launched, you can traverse to Platform Update --> Launch Platform Update. Select FTP server as source and click Next. In next page provide "" as IP address and click Next. This should do your job.

    Let me know how it goes.


  • Hi,

    You can update BIOS with DTK also.
