Searching for BIOS Update for Proliant BL685C G7

Hi, I've inherited some BL685C G7s and upgraded the CPUs with  AMD 6830s that were lying around. And right now there is a problem with VMWARE, because the bios version of the prolaint is  03/19/2012 and it should be above 2012.08.15 . I've tried to download the newest but it requires me to have a service contract with HP, which I dont have and I wont get ( budget stuff ... ). So is there a way to use a lower version and get away with downloading it for free ?

Thanks in advance!

Latest version is 2016.03.07

https://support.hpe.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?swItemId=MTX_a9f9e43465c2449ea96b9e3828#tab-history

file name (linux) is hp-firmware-system-a20-2016.03.07-1.1.i386.rpm

There is probably no way to download "for free", unless a version is "critical".

 


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Thanks for the fast reply. I've actually found the old versions of the bios in a repo copy website, but now that i've done some reading I really need the latest one ...
