Update Firmware for Dell iDrac R610 PE Server

I'm trying to update the Bios firmware via the iDRAC enterprise panel (version 6 iDRAC). I'm on 6.4.0 BIOS. I've done it before using .BIN file off Dell's site, but this time I'm getting this error?

"File is not valid for iDRAC Firmware update"

I downloaded the file http://downloads.dell.com/FOLDER04846338M/1/R610_BIOS_60HK9_LN_6.5.0.BIN from this page:  http://downloads.dell.com/published/pages/poweredge-r610.html

What could be the issue here? I do not want to upgrade via CLI/SSH but the web iDRAC as I've done before.

Re: Update Firmware for Dell iDrac R610 PE Server

Do me a favor, download the version here.

Once complete then run and extract the file named firmimg.d6 to a USB and then browse to that from the iDrac Update and Restore page and run it. 

That will update the iDrac for you.

Let me know how it goes.
