PowerEdge R330 BIOS will not upgrade

going from version 1.3.2 to 2.0.8

  • I have tried upgrading directly from Dell OME
  • I have tried using 32 bit and 64 bit installers manually on the server logged in as administrator and running the binaries as administrator
  • I have tried upgrading first to 1.4.5 and it won't upgrade to that version either.

This server is part of a pair of Hyper-V hosts and the other server upgraded just fine from the OME. Please help. Thanks in advance

Check to make sure that the iDRAC and LifeCycle controller on the server are up to date before using OME. If not, apply these updates using Dell Update Package (DUP): http://www.dell.com/support/article/us/en/04/sln292342/updating-firmware-using-dell-update-packages-...
