    Firmware prior to 45 in S5500BC (not R) vs E56xx


      Actually, I have another question regarding S5500BC. I received a brand-new, boxed, S5500BC not R -- probably a stock leftover -- that came bundled with firmware version 25 (as it seems)


      Right now I only have Xeon E5620 and Core i7 processors available. The support docs state that f/w version 45 is the absolute minimum necessary to run a 56xx processor, so, rightfully, the board just beeps when I power it up with the E5620. Haven't tried any Core i7, since it would almost certainly do no good.


      Since I don't have any 55xx processor available, is there any other way than EFI shell to flash new firmware with any of these CPUs?
