How to upgrade SCSI EFI driver

Hi,
I have a new HP rx4640 (itanium) with HP UX 11iv2. I am having issues with auto boot and was advised the following by HP

"f you then want to upgrade to a newer version of firmware, use the proper upgrade procedure. However, if you already have this autoboot problem, you can simply upgrade the SCSI EFI driver and then reset the machine. This should resolve the autoboot problem. Here is the basic procedure once you have copied all 4 files (efi8xxfl.efi, lsiscsi.rom, sysupdate.efi, and
update_SFW.efi) to the \EFI\HP\FIRMWARE directory:

fs0:\EFI\HP\firmware> sysupdate

Updating Ultra160 SCSI controllers to EFI Driver version 1.03.01.00

EFI8XXFL-1.01.13.00
"

1. How & where can I get the 4 files listed ?

2. Is is better to upgrade to the newer version of firmware ot only the SCSI EFI driver ?

Thanks for your input.
Regards,
Vijay

If the HP Response Center sent you the procedure, go back to them and ask them to send you the files as well.

I have asked for the files and still waiting. While waiting I thought I can get some expert advise on upgrading the firmware to the newer version or update this driver alone. In the mean trying to get some info on how/where to download the files.

Hi Vijay,

Once you get the files, you can copy those files to the EFI partition.

You can access/list this files by,
when you are at EFI prompt

shell>map ===> this command will list the efi filesystems

shell>fs0: ===> select the appropriate partiotion

once you go to the fs0:, almost all DOS commands work, you can use cd,dir etc, to see/list the files.

Hope this helps.

Hi

You can get the firmware patch on the ITRC .
http://www1.itrc.hp.com/
Once on ITRC select "patch/firmware database"
Then select "firmware" under find individual patch.
Next window in the search put "efi8xxfl.efi"

That will give you the firmware that your looking for.

Instruction on how to install are incleded in the patch
