PowerEdge R220 BIOS Update


I need help to update my bios version currently my R220 has 1.4.0

I have tried from Lifecycle Controller but without success as the server ftp.dell.com is not available, and I can't access it from http as I don't have that option.

I also tried to get an update boot disk but I have to use a DRM application if I don't mind, to get an ISO, right now I don't have any OS on my R220 to be able to run that application.

I have downloaded the bios R220-011100.exe to try to update it from a USB memory but without success since when entering Boot Manager 1.0 in System utilities, I do not have the option to update the bios from a USB memory.

How can I proceed?


Thanks guys.

If you have supported iDRAC FW you can update BIOS using iDRAC. You can check below link for details


You can also have a bootable USB key with "R220-011100.exe" image. Boot to USB key and perform the update by running the executable

If you want to update BIOS, please ensure that the BIOS version is compatible with your PC as well as backup BIOS before the update.
