Invalid image file (Burning iPXE to Intel NIC)

Invalid image file (Burning iPXE to Intel NIC)

After relocating my server, I got the brilliant idea that while it's down, I should update my iPXE flash on the Intel NIC, since the one I'm currently running is from 2011. Also, I wanted to replace the embedded script with a dynamic one loaded from a webserver.

Anyway, after 3 days of bashing my head against the wall, not being able to flash (burn) the latest iPXE to the NIC, I'm hoping someone here might have a few tips.

The issue I'm running into is that when I run BootUtil.exe with the following parameters:

bootutil -nic 1 -restoreimage -file 808610c9.rom

I get this error:

"Invalid image file 808610C9.ROM"

Now I've googled myself half to death, and did come over this thread. The thing about the size of the image file did ring a bell, and so I built a new one with less features, so that it's now at 61,440 bytes, which should be well below the 64KB limit. So I tried again, bit no luck. Still get the same error.

Then I tried using the older utility as suggested in the same thread, but that utility/version doesn't recognize my NIC (8086:10c9 - Intel 82576).

So I'm pretty much stuck now.

It's obviously possible to flash the 82576 with iPXE, as that's exactly what I have been using for the past couple of years, but I can't for the life of me remember how I did it, so again, any help or tips will be greatly appreciated!
