While trying to update the BIOS' of PowerEdge 2950s to 2.6.5 from 2.2.6, I got this message, "Unable to retrieve BIOS information." These are remote servers so updating via boot-disk isn't feasible.

Anyone have any suggestions on how to accomplish BIOS updates?

Would enabling overclocking of the BIOS help at all? –  Christopher Chipps Dec 20 '11 at 6:47

1 Answer 1

Did you try to do a minor update first? 2.2.6 -> 2.3.*, etc (if it's possible).

yes, but those installers give me the same error. –  Aaron Jul 30 '10 at 17:25
