Thanks very much for the quick responses! I was using an HP and whitebox mobo (two systems with these cages in them) but I just realized I have an Intel SE7525RP2 inside an SC5275E chassis on the bench that does have the HSBP connector on the mobo. I assume the firmware only be upgraded through this port. While the chassis doesn't physically fit the cage, I can access the port from this motherboard possibly?
The ark page doesnt return results for the AXX6DRV3GEXP or the SE7525RP2.
I have a dos bootable cdrom with the firmware files copied to it ready to go if it would work with "Other" chassis type?
Given the two big warnings posted at
regarding *not* using earlier motherboards to do the update, I don't think I'd feel comfortable using an SE7525RP2, which is even older than the 5000 series.
