FC firmware of bl460c FC mezz card

Hi All,

I tried to update the firmware of the FC mezzanine card on a bl460c using the zip file I downloaded from HP. The update fails and gives out the following message:

"The file C:\zf270a5\LP6DUTIL.EXE is valid, but is for a machine type other than the current machine."

The current firmware is at 2.50a8 and I'm trying to upgrade it to 2.70a5. Hope you can help me. Thanks...

If you check the readme.txt on that file, it says:
LP6DUTIL.EXE DOS-based diagnostic utility 9.3a6
This utility must be run booting in MS-DOS. It's also explained here: http://www-dl.emulex.com/support/hardware/lp8000/fw/df391a3/pdf/fwupdate.pdf

To update firmware from Windows, use HBAnyware utility.
