    I know I'm late to the game, and the couple of links I've found seem to have expired. Is there any way to get Dell PowerEdge R710_WN64_6.6.0_DELL25_.rar again? I have the 2.3 on a machine here but haven't been keeping it up to date. I appreciate the resources people put into this site and hate to ask. But I didn't have luck doing this manually last time around so I'm hoping to take the easy way out if I can.

    Hi Serg008!

    The DH61CR Rev 204 board is a sod to flash, has to be done in stages. Not even sure if this BIOS will still flash in Recovery now is at v1.20 already - finally got Recovery to work with my Rev 204 (I fooled it)!!!!

    Please can you patch this BIOS to add a SLIC 2.5.
    I am unsure if I need a RW or not - included in the above zip...

    Got two additional boards coming, so not a loss if my original won't flash further. It's fixed!!!!
    Newer boards are > Rev 204. 207 and 209.

    Thanks...

    Mole.

    Used iFlash to 48
    Use RECOVERY for 99 I think. I used iFlash and this did not flash so board worked 100%. But think all do this...
    Use RECOVERY for 120. This was a right sod. Rev 204 refused to use Recovery Mode. Flash fail in F7.
    01. I reset the BIOS and ME jumpers of the board. Shorted the BIOS Reset and Me Reset.
    (See DH61CR motherboard guides)
    02. Set BIOS to defaults. Boot set to make USBF main drive.
    03. Recovery mode would not work. I think I booted it with the USBF in a USB, then whipped off the BIOS jumper at just the right moment. Tricked it into using Recovery Mode. Got a screen (at last) flashed it - so did not stop it. Fixed 099 fault (and one you need to use) to 120. Now BIOS boots again... I was close to binning the board....

    Please can someone give me/point me towards instructions? No idea how to use this...

    I did my PowerEdge R710 II a year ago. Must play with it... I had to patch the BIOS and unhide the SLIC table...

    Need a new career! :(

    Yes, I forgot to mention that I already unlocked the SLIC table a while ago.
