i own a server with an Intel Serverboard S5000VCL and an Intel Xeon E5410 CPU. Recently, i have done an upgrade of BIOS due to an amber status led blinking and after talking to intel support they suggested it. I have updated the BIOS and BMC to the newest version but after i rebooted i got an A19 (i think) status code - processor voltage missmatch.
I'd like to "roll back" the BIOS to one of the older versions which my CPU has worked on but i cannot get to intel deployment assistant anymore. I know there is a recovery jumper, i have tried it and i managed to boot but i have no idea how to preform a recovery on the PRIMARY BIOS now. I can't run the machine in recovery mode for ever.
I have spent the last 4 hours googling around on recovery information but i have found nothing. No instructions or documents. The guide says to check "Firmware updates" but i have no idea where or what to check - cant find that on intel's website.
Please advise how to update the primary bios (downgrade, that is) - there must be a way. I would expect that after booting recovery bios it would rollback the primary one but it seems this is not the case.
Please check the post below and document as well regarding the Bios Recovery:
Now regarding the voltage mismatched error, check my previous post.
All the best,
