Intel I350 NIC Firmware update
I have an Intel I350 as the NIC for Pfsense. Could someone outline the steps for updating / flashing the card with the latest firmware. I have USB ports on the Pfsense box. Could I flash the card from a USB key. Any help will be appreciated.
Write the ALT Linux Rescue ISO file to a USB drive using rufus. Extract from the intel zip, APPS\BootUtil\EFIx64*BOOTUTIL64E.EFI* & APPS\BootUtil*BootIMG.FLB* to the root of the USB drive. At the ALT Linux Rescue boot screen, select efi shell. At the command line,
fs0: BOOTUTIL64E.EFI BOOTUTIL64E.EFI -ALL -FLASHENABLE
BOOTUTIL64E.EFI -UP=PXE -ALL -FILE=BOOTIMG.FLB
Drive fs0 may vary.
Command line parameters are at https://downloadmirror.intel.com/24180/eng/BootUtil.txt
Thanks for this information. It's just what I have been looking for to check out the firmware.
