Hi, i have problem upgrading the system bios. My actual bios is v02.98 and all upgrade fail. It seems that i need the v02.99 to install before passing to bios v03.xx but i don't find it ?

If someone could help me...

Thanks in advance.

@frabre,

The 8000 series machines are old business units, dating back to 2009 . Not really modern.  The inital OS dates back to XP.  You stated BIOS 2.98 and it not listed. I did see a 2.99 ?  The problem is that WIN 10 will not allow you to upgrade, as the BIOS is tied to the originally installed OS. 

Not sure of your intentions, but those units are not gamers.  The existing PSU is not upgraeable, the PCIEx16 ver 2.0 is Legacy, and does not support the newer UEFI vBIOS cards.  Sorry if this news was not expected, but it is best to tell you.
