      The flashupdt program hangs on my system when using the -i or -u options:

       

      (I had to use the task manager ti kill it after 60 min of running)

       

      c:\Program Files (x86)\Intel\Flashupdt>
      c:\Program Files (x86)\Intel\Flashupdt>flashupdt.exe -u c:\Users\Administrator\Downloads\S5000PSL_BIOS101_BMC66_FRUSDR48\flashupdt.c
      fg

      Then Nothing - the task manager reports 13% CPU from flashupdt.exe.


      How do I fix this?

       

      I posted another discussion regarding running the BIOS101.bat update script from a DOS bootable USB stick with similar results.

       

      It appears that I'm at a dead end on the BIOS upgrade path and yet there is a specific fix losted in the new BIOS release notes that I need.

       

      Please help. I'll try just about anything at this point.

       

      Note that the windows install I used here was solely for the purpose of running flashupdt as I usually use Linux.
