Step 4: Enter "y" when prompted with "Do you want to continue (y/n)?"


Step 5: Once the flash image is updated, you will see "Percent Complete 100%" followed by the "#" prompt.

Step 6: Type "reboot"


Step 7: Remove CD or DVD from the player


Step 8: Once the host reboots, install the appropriate driver kit


Please note that if you use this method of updating firmware, you'll need to power cycle the CNA/LOM in order to get the LEDs to function properly afterwards.
