BIOS Upgrade

Find your BIOS update

  • Visit http://support.dell.com
  • "Select a product" and choose "Drivers & Downloads" - you can do this in either order.
    • To select a product, either choose your machine's model or enter the machine's service tag.
  • You should now be faced with a list of the most recent downloads. Click "View all".
  • Choose a likely-sounding Operating System from the list. Some variety of Redhat Enterprise Linux, for instance.
  • Go down to the "BIOS" section.
  • to be continued
