DELL RBU DEVICE DRIVER

In yet another embodiment, the method further includes the steps of, prior to the replacing step, retrieving the updated BIOS from the predetermined partition in the storage device, and validating the updated BIOS. Among many other things, the storage device contains one or more operating systems and a partition dedicated to storing code and instructions for providing an interface between the operating system s and firmware. For example, for computer systems on a network it is more convenient and time efficient to update the BIOS of remote systems on the network from a single separately located system, such as from a system administrator. Search Expert Search Quick Search. The computer system is capable of receiving an updated BIOS image from the centralized computer system via the communication link, storing the updated BIOS image in a partition of the storage device, rebooting the computer system, and subsequently replacing the system BIOS with the updated BIOS and rebooting. For example, the system administrator and the target system may include Dell Computer Corporation’s Open Manager Software.

The above method for remotely updating a system BIOS is possible only in computer systems capable of executing a soft reboot where the contents of the system memory are maintained throughout the soft reboot. The updated BIOS image is received by an operating system module, such as the system management agent, and loaded into a predetermined location in the dedicated partition of storage devicesuch as the EFI partition, at step United States Patent A personal computer system typically includes a system unit having a central processing unit CPU and associated memory, and a storage device such as a hard disk, floppy disk or CD ROM, a display device, and an input device such as a keyboard or mouse.

Method and system for executing BIOS code in secure multitasking operating environment. In yet another embodiment, the method further includes the steps of, following the setting step, the step of placing a storage location identifier in the predetermined partition of the storage device identifying the location of the updated BIOS.

For example, for computer systems on a network it is more convenient and time efficient to update the BIOS of remote systems on the network from a single separately located system, such as from a system administrator.

During a soft reboot the contents of system memory are maintained throughout the soft reboot procedure. A system and method for remotely updating a system BIOS. For example, the system administrator and the target system may include Dsvice Computer Corporation’s Open Manager Software. Although advantageous, the completion status message is also problematic because it requires accessing the system BIOS during the booting procedure, which requires additional BIOS interface code.

The system administrator sends the updated BIOS image over communication link to the target system. This feature, however, does not exist for many newer computer systems, including computer systems that are based on Intel IA architecture. Search Expert Search Quick Search.

According to another embodiment, the computer system is part bru a network, and a centralized computer system on the network is coupled to the computer system by a communication link, and the centralized computer system provides the updated BIOS to the computer system via the communication link.
