Help! Need Offline Array contoller flash atleast 4.40 version....

Hi,

I need to find an online array controller flash to get it to at least version 4.40 so that I can online flash it to 4.50. Windows version is 2003.

Here's the actual error message:

Emily:


Since you will need to reboot anyway, you best bet is probably to pull down one of the older Option ROMpaq's to get to a higher level on your current controller.

Click here...

for the Options ROMpaq for Array Controllers. It looks like 3.06a will get you to 4.50 (or any version afterwards). Then you can aply the online pack to get to 4.50b if needed.
