Update firmware for older Dell servers

Download the CentOS LiveDVD from here:

next, copy it to a usb drive with dd:

sudo dd if=<path to CentOS iso> of=/dev/<my usb drive> bs=4096

This image should have all the latest firmware built into it. I used this to update BMC firmware for the Dell R900.

There is a blog by Dell about this procedure as well, shown here:
