Flash BIOS on T520 thin client with USB

HP T520 Flexible Thin Client
Other

OS: HP ThinPro 6-64

BIOS: L41 v01.02

 

I'm looking for a bit of guidance on flashing the BIOS on this TC. Instructions for the softpaq say to run hptc-bios-flash but this will only work with the tool-less option set in the BIOS. As this is a very early BIOS version, that option does not exist in the BIOS config. After a reboot the update is not applied.

 

Ideally what I would like to do is to create a bootable USB to flash the BIOS from, but the part I'm struggling to find is the correct BIOS flashing utility. The ami-flash reports a corrupt BIOS file, although I know it is fine as I've used the same file on other systems.

 

Could anyone give me some pointers please?

Problem solved. I installed ThinPro 5.0 which had the relevant hptc-bios-flash command so I could update the BIOS.
