mismatch total byte of SFW4.03 for rx3600

I am planning to update SFW for rx3600 by using ISO image from 2.03 to 4.03.
I have some question.

1. Is it possible to update jumping from 2.03 to 4.03 without 3.01A ?

2. When I download PF_CRUSASYS0403.zip & unzip it , total byte of ISO image was 50761846 byte. It does not match n*2048 of CD track specification. Is it correct or not?

Tail part of ISO image is shown bellow,

# dd if=PF_CRUSASYS0403.iso bs=2k | hd | tail -n 15
24786+1 records in
24786+1 records out
50761846 bytes transferred in 25.967157 secs (1954848 bytes/sec)

From address 0301b540, NULL padding upto 03069000-1, so I guess it is a garbage and total byte may be 0x3069000=50761728.

Re: mismatch total byte of SFW4.03 for rx3600

I got the same length as you. I'm surprised there isn't a md5sum value for the .iso file.
I've done one of these before, I don't remember if it was "off" but it made the image.

Hi Dennis,
Thank you for information.

When I burn CD on Windows machine using this
ISO image, Error messgae appeared such as "Bad compatibility" and quit. And that CD could not open properly.
When I burn CD on *BSD machine,NULL data padding is done and total byte become 50763776 (=24787sect* 2048). And that CD could open properly.( I used the "cdrecord" as my CD burner)
I could boot my rx3600 from 2nd CD and HPOFM started. Maybe I can proceed the further to update SFW but I'm afaid that SFW update may fail.

pls advise me if you have any idea.

regards,
Torsten.

Re: mismatch total byte of SFW4.03 for rx3600

I can download and extract the image without problems. Also my win based burner doesn't complain ... but I don't want to burn it, because I always use the EFI version of the firmware files.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: mismatch total byte of SFW4.03 for rx3600

Thank you for information.

I have to update about 40 rx3600/rx2660. So what is the best way to update SFW.

a)HPOFW
b)EFI version
c)OS patch version

OS version is B.11.23.0706.

Have idea?
Torsten.

Re: mismatch total byte of SFW4.03 for rx3600

This is up to you - basically all are the same. All will bring the EFI file into place and run it, but the way how to bring it into place varies.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

the previous SFW version is 2.03

MP FW : F.02.17
BMC FW : 05.23
EFI FW : ROM A 05.66, ROM B 07.12
System FW : ROM A 02.03, ROM B 04.03, Boot ROM B
PDH FW : 50.07

UCIO FW : 03.0b
PRS FW : 00.08 UpSeqRev: 0c, DownSeqRev: 08
HFC FW : 00.03 SetRev: 00

HFC FW was not updated but it is normal as written in install_manual.txt

appreciate your helping,

Re: mismatch total byte of SFW4.03 for rx3600

you can update the highspeed fan controller fw using the fpga package, but IMHO this is not needed:

SYSREV


Current firmware revisions



MP FW : F.02.17

BMC FW : 05.23

EFI FW : ROM A 07.12, ROM B 07.12

System FW : ROM A 04.03, ROM B 04.03, Boot ROM B

PDH FW : 50.07

DHPC FW : 01.23

UCIO FW : 03.0b

PRS FW : 00.08 UpSeqRev: 0c, DownSeqRev: 08

HFC FW : 00.04 SetRev: 00

Hope this helps!

Torsten.
