    Help needed updating BIOS on a Dell R710

    peter79 Enthusiast



      I need help.  I have a Dell PowerEdge server running ESX 4.1 and I'm trying to update the BIOS from 1.3.6 to 2.1.15.  I downloaded the correct package but when I run the install it fails and I get the following message


      "Execution operation exceeded specified timeout.  Update failed to cmplete"


      Anyone have any experience with this or similar updates.  The Dell website wasnt particularly helpfull.
