    Is there an alternate hosting site for the newest firmware? I don't have a Filedropper account and the side seems to require sign-up to download the B10/B11 firmware. Note, I have the Quanta board.

    Hi, had anyone tracked down a firmware update? Mine has a bios date of 06/03/2013 16:12:52 Ver:F03_3B01. Unfortunately it isn't new enough to support a Windows Server 2016 install as it gives the dreaded ACPI_BIOS_ERROR. One additional piece of info, a nvidia 640 card works well so that...
