EXSI 5.5 on Dell PowerEdge 2950-III

Hi,, Helping out someone. he has an issue he can't get his Dell Poweredge 2950-III updated to to BIOS 2.3.1

I have checked VMware Compatibility Guide - System Search

without success as the website doesn't mention specific model CPU...

He's using E5400x with ESXi... but one that he can't run with ESxi, is X5450 : Solved: Installing VMware ESXi on PE2950 - Dell Community

As mentioned in above, this guy managed to solved it applying controller update, but since i'm guessing all these .exe files from dell need to be run or Windows, he's out of luck, as this is on bare-bone system. : Support for PowerEdge 2950 | Drivers & downloads | Dell Australia

Bios 2.3.1 won't install on his system..Currently he has 2.26,
