Need help on IBM ServeRaid 5i BIOS/Firmware upgrade


We just upgraded the Cisco Call manager on IBM xSeries 345 MT-8670-M1X server with Cisco patch WIN-OS-Upgrade-K9.2000-4-2sr6.exe. After upgrade we got this error message about IBMC ServeRaid 5i controller card.

"Version mismatch detected: controller 1. The BIOS (version 6.10.24), Firmware (version 6.10.24), and Driver (version 7.10.18) are not a matched set and are not compatible."

We download the BIOS/firmware upgrade Disk from this web site.

During the upgrade, the server continues ask insert disk1.

Also this site does not have the latest device drive for IBM ServeRaid 5i in windows 2000 server.

I need some help and you will get my highest vote

1. Where can I get the proper BIOS/Firmware upgrade disk from Cisco?

2. During the upgrade stage, why the server always ask “insert disk 1”. I have tried all 5 disks. But none of the work. I disconnect the mirri during the upgrade. Does it affect the upgrade?

3. Where can I get the latest device driver for 5i work with windows 2000 server?

Many thank

Does any Cisco CCIE here? I think it's not difficult for them.
