Updating dell bios ubuntu 9 10

We also know about such documented cases with both X9SCM-F and X9DR7-LN4F motherboards with Ubuntu Launchpad. If there are missing UEFI boot entries after the core update they can be restored as described below after restarting the system.

The following example illustrates a case where after the Grub update there are missing UEFI boot images: [email protected]:~$ sudo efibootmgr -v Boot Current: 0001 Timeout: 10 seconds Boot Order: 0001,0000,0002,0003,0005 Boot0000* ubuntu HD(1,800,f3800,caff37a0-8078-4b24-956e-79eb5e33631f)File(\EFI\ubuntu\grubx64.efi) Boot0001* ubuntu2 HD(1,800,f3800,957eb480-5f2f-409e-95b8-62c38a3305c0)File(\EFI\ubuntu2\grubx64.efi) [email protected]:~$ sudo apt-get update; apt-get upgrade [...] Reading state information...

When updating the BIOS of a Supermicro X9SCM-F motherboard (from BIOS Version 1.x to 2.x), these boot entries will be lost and Ubuntu will no longer boot afterwards.

The problem can also occur alongside a BIOS or Grub update.

Updating or Downgrading your Bios is pretty straight forward on Ubuntu. But that should not scare you, i have tried to make the guide as easy as possible.

Ok maybe not as straight forward as double clinking to install. first we open Terminal /Application/Accessories/Terminal Now since we will be running every command as root(as administrator), we sould need to become an admin.

You wouldn't think, but you know the file does exist because you can see it.

These are the dependencies as documented for Red Hat.

I suppose that they ought to be available for Ubuntu under the same or similar names; procmail, glibc, compat-libstdc -296, compat-libstdc -33, libstdc , zlib, and libxml2.

Armed with this information you now need to get the BIOS version want to upgrade / downgrade. Scroll down the list to find a directory matching the System ID from the previous step. be sure to remove the “reboot=bios” from your kernel line.

and look for the bios version that you want to upgrade/downgrade to In my case my directory is named: system_bios_ven_0x1028_dev_0x0209_version_a14/ my system ID IS 0x0209 and the version of bios i wanted was A14. Now that you are done updating /downgrading we would need to tell the system to do a cold reboot which is what is needed after doing a bios update. I used this method to update the BIOS of my dell xps m1330 ( and downgraded it once) and it worked fine without any ( as we Nigerians will say) Whahala or problem.

The company I work for recently got hands on a batch of second hand Power Edge SC1425 machines. Our operating system of choice is Ubuntu Server 10.04 64-bit, which installs just peachy on this type of machine.
