Firmware for HP NC543i 2-port 4x QDR IB/10Gb Adapter in HP ProLiant SL390s G7 on Windows Server 2012

Hello, I'm trying to upgrade a firmware for HP NC543i 2-port 4x QDR IB/10Gb Adapter in HP ProLiant SL390s G7 on Windows Server 2012 according to instructions here to version 2.9.1530.

 

I've installed Mellanox Firmware Tools (MFT) 3.5.0, the command 'mst status' gives correct results:

 

MST devices:
------------
mt26438_pci_cr0
mt26438_pciconf0

 

But when I try to use flint to query PSID, I have an error:

 

PS C:\Windows\system32> flint -d mt26438_pci_cr0 query
-E- SPI flash #0 (vendor: 0xc2, memory type: 0x20, es: 0) is not supported.
-E- Cannot open Device: mt26438_pci_cr0. MFE_UNSUPPORTED_FLASH_TYPE

 

So  I can't proceed to firmware upgrade. Please advise, how to solve that problem.

 

It's interesting that "HP Mellanox Online Firmware Utility" correctly identifies PSID, but it can only be used to upgrade to 2.8.0 firmware that I already have:

This was solved by upgrading to the last Mellanox Firmware Tools (MFT) package 3.6.0 (WinMFT_x64_3_6_0_27.exe). Make sure that you install all package content. The correct output after upgrade is:
