Flash D3373-Ax with D3373-B1x BIOS rom

Postby jazzz » Thu Jun 20, 2019 9:34

I have a Fujitsu Primergy TX1320 M2 with a D3373-Ax mainboard.
This mainboard supports Intel Skylake family processors in its 1151 socket, for example Xeon E3-1230v5.

Mainboards of other manufacturers support the newer Intel Kabylake processors in the same 1151 socket with the same Intel C236 chipset after a BIOS update.

Does Fujitsu offer a BIOS update for the TX1320 M2 to support the newer Kabylake processors, for example Xeon E3-1230v6? I could not find one on the official support pages, so I guess they do not support it officially.

However, the newer Fujitsu Primergy TX1330 M3 has a almost identical D3373-Bx mainboard.
Would it be possible to update the D3373-Ax mainboard with a BIOS rom file for the D3373-Bx mainboard? After that, I would have to replace the v5 processor with a v6 processor and reboot.

Is it possible to test the BIOS update and (if it fails) restore the BIOS in iRMC?

Hi I am facing the same problem with you. My one is RX100 S7(D3034-A100 motherboard), has same chipset Intel C202 with RX100 S7P( D3034-B100 motherboard) S7P support E3 1200 V2 Xeon, S7 only support V1. Both of them has same version Bios file 1.29.

But you can not flash bios even under Dos and rename the file name.

HP and Dell can support new CPU after Bios update. But Fujitsu not
