INTEL L440GX+ BMC Flash Recovery

Postby wahaj87 » Mon May 18, 2009 9:55 pm

I have intel motherboard L440GX+. I successfully updated the bios. Then tried the bmc flash using bmc flash utility version 1.24 as given on www intel com/support/motherboards/server/l440gx/ .

Command is : fwupdate.exe lwfb0124.hex

It works fine. reboot, fine. OS loaded , fine.

But system hangs after few hours. And now after few days the system is not booting at all.

Checked the power line . Ok
Checked the power supply. Ok

How to boot it?
Unable to boot even the jumper "RCVRY BOOT" is enabled.
Also tried other combinations of the jumper setting. Used Default positions of Jumpers but in vain.
I think its bmc flash has corrupted the boot code inside it. So any one knew how to flash the bmc in offline mode (without booting the system) (if possible) ?
