Important notes

This is production FW package. All updates provided in this package are installed using the embedded uEFI operating environment only.

Do not modify any of the script files. The scripts as written will provide the most reliable update experience.

Added the new function to check the FW version on current system, which can make sure whether System BIOS, BMC Firmware, CPLD, FRU&SDR, or PMem data need to be re-installed after the initial update has been performed. The package does include standalone script files that can be run individually.

These files include:
