PRIMERGY TX140 S2 BIOS update 2.14 failed !

Postby alexisperr » Tue Aug 11, 2015 10:42

My TX140 S2 with BIOS 2.10 is noisy as hell, so I tried to install BIOS 2.14 with the Windows package but I got the error message :

Primergy Autonomous Support Package
This Autonomous Support Package
is not applicable to this System!

Should I try BIOS update via freedos USB boot key ?

First thing I would do is update the iRMC firmware. it is possible the iRMC is crashing and this would cause the fans to run fast, and also perhaps the updates to fail. To completely reset the iRMC you need to remove ALL power for 30 seconds, then plug in again and update the iRMC immediately

If you are on iRMC firmware < 7.68F this is almost certainly the problem

Hi, I have downloaded the Windows version of the iRMC patch for the firmware but same error message :

Primergy Autonomous Support Package
This Autonomous Support Package
is not applicable to this System!

I guess I will try the Live DVD from :
ftp://ftp.ts.fujitsu.com/images/serverview/
ServerBooks_11-15-07_DVD.iso

Does it contains firmware updates ?

Or last option the UBS freedos boot key ?

If you want to use the live system for updating the TX140S2 you have to use this DVD:
http://support.ts.fujitsu.com/Download/ ... 853BD11585
The download is around 7GB, but you could update every HW device in your TX140S2. This CD should work independendly of the installed OS and should not change or destroy something on the HDD.

Really cool solution.

ServerBooks is a manuals DVD - doesn't contain updates

Did you reset the iRMC before trying the Windows updater though as I suggested?

You are right : I unplugged the power cord and now the Windows iRMC firmware update has installed in 10 minutes

Many thanks...

But still the BIOS 2.14 update is failing.
