Pinned topic X3550 M2 - Bios & IMM error during Flash - Unrecognized System Type

‏2013-11-07T22:46:18Z |

Hey guys,

We are trying to flash our server from 1.08 to 1.17 and we are getting a "Unrecognized System Type!" error. I have attached a screenshot & any help would be greatly appreciated. 

The bios file we have tried is this: ibm_fw_bios_gfe149b-1.17_anyos_i386.iso

We also got the exact same error with the IMM flash with this file: ibm_fw_uefi_d6e160a-1.18_linux_32-64.bin

    I believe you are trying to update the wrong firmware/wrong files.

    I believe you are trying to update the wrong firmware/wrong files.

     

    This page has no bios but the firmware for IMM is from there: ibm_fw_uefi_d6e160a-1.18_linux_32-64.bin

    http://www-947.ibm.com/support/entry/portal/product/hardware/systems/system_x/system_x3550_m2?productContext=-139670742

    And the bios from here:  ibm_fw_bios_gfe149b-1.17_anyos_i386.iso

    Have you tried using Bootable media creator ?
