    SROMBSASMP2 RAID fw update fails with Exit code=17

    bfun

      I am trying to upgrade our RAID controller SROMBSASMP2 on our S5520UR motherboard via EFI but it fails, can anyone advise? More detail:

      Package version on the controller: 9.0.1-0041

      Package version of the image file: 11.0.1-0036

      Exit code = 17

      We are upgrading because the Readme shows so many problems that we don't want to experience.   However Flash package 11.0.1-0036 says it contains Firmware Version = 1.40.232-1007, but I don't know what fw version Flash package 9.0.1-0041 (as reported above) contains, ie I don't know what fw version is currently installed and therefore what range of bugs are fixed...

          I suppose you have both the RAID Key and DIMM installed right? What's the BIOS version of your S5520UR board? Did it give any other messages besides Exit code = 17?

            Yes I believe the RAID Key and DIMM are installed.  The BIOS is the latest version, 0.61  and the so is the backplane HSC 2.17.

             

            In a manual called "Intel RAID software users guide", "d29305019_raid_swg_r19_0.pdf" Table 14 MFI messags number 17 says: info Flash downloaded image corrupt.   I downloaded the image again, and retried with the same result.

             

            Full feedback after running update.nsh from EFI 2.0:

            Adapter 0: Integrated Intel RAID SROMBSASMP2

            Vendor IS 0x1000, Device ID 0x60

            Package version on the controller: 9.0.1-0041

            Package version of the image file: 11.0.1-0036

            Exit code = 17

              I mean this error occurs when the version check told that the old fw is too old for the new fw.

              In this case you have to update with following commands:

              efi\cmdtool2 -adpfwflash -f MP2_1007.rom -noverchk -aall

              ( -> you have only to read the readme and follow the uefi update instructions...)

               

              or edit the update.nsh:

               

              cd CmdTool2

              cd UEFI

              CmdTool2.efi -adpfwflash -f ..\..\MP2_1007.rom -noverchk -aall
