Re: Firmware 44.28 upgraded on the wrong model

Hi Rod,

I know the warning when updating, but is it really possible to burn the wrong image?
Looks like it is.
Did you do this with a patch?

Since this system has no second (backup) NVRAM, you probably lost the systemboard now.

I did by boot with Tape Drive.

It's big mistake on my part. I did not even know the system I was working on is L3000.

And it's my first time on perform firmware upgrade.

hi,

bad luck, but just before you potentially have more bad luck and buy the wrong systemboard, chck the part number of your system and the systemboard in it.

there is an A and a B version

A6144A = L3000
A6144B = RP5470
