One of the easiest methods requiring no server configuration is to upgrade Power Edge servers via booting into a Cent OS 7.0 x64 live environment (USB is faster but one may want to use CD/DVD due to a limited number of USB ports), load the firmware BIN files onto a FAT32 USB drive, execute the following in a terminal to find the path to the USB drive, and launch the .
