Re: Can't Update BIOUS on T110 II (no USC 'Platform Update' option)

@ WWYW - 

Thank you for your reply. I was unable to find the iso you had mentioned, but I did find a successful workaround for the BIOS upgrade, although it took me a few hours to figure out the exact process. Smiley Happy I was just successful in updating my BIOS from 1.0.4 to 1.9.2 (what a jump!) Below are my instructions: 

##PowerEdge T110 BIOS update##

1.) Download the latest BIOS dos executable from support.dell.com (1.9.2 for me)

2.) Create a bootable MS-DOS USB by following these steps: 

Download Rufus utility, Rufus v 1.1.7 without FreeDOS Support (Note version):

https://github.com/pbatard/rufus/downloads

Download Win98_bootdisk.iso from allbootdisks.com: 

http://www.allbootdisks.com/download/iso.html

Run Rufus_v1.1.7.exe

Click the disk icon to the right of "Create a Bootable disk using:" and select the Win98_bootdisk.iso you just downloaded. (I got what looked to be an error here but it is not an error....proceed forward!) 

Click Start. Once it is finished, copy the BIOS update .exe you downloaded from support.dell.com to the USB and run the executables in DOS mode. 

Success. Drink Beer.
