6560b bios update

Dear Customer,



THe BIOS version on your unit seems pretty OLD.Hence you will have to follow the hierarchy

Directly updating to Version:F.64 Rev.A (24 Oct 2016) might not be possible. BIOS versions are interrelated to the previous versions.

Recommend you to try one after the other


Then try Version:F.22 (22 Dec 2011) ,
Version:F.26 (31 May 2012), skip the rest and try Version:F.29 (4 Jan 2013)  and so on..


Below is the link:
