Fiery software reinstall - how?

I have a EXP250 running a Docucolor 240 that I want to try a clean install of software on.

 

I have EFI Fiery System Software v1.1 and also  a unopened disk

EFI Fiery Network Controller System Software

 

Could anyone tell me the difference to the 2 above?

 

When I try either disk and turn on the Fiery it appears their is DVD activity but instead of giving me a option to install software I end up at Windows - yet if I put in a Linux disk like redobackup.org's cloning disk it properly boots from the CD.

 

I tried F8 and F12 keys during boot but was not taken to CMOS settings. Does anyone know the proper procedure for entering to CMOS on this Fiery?

 

Thanks,

Re: Fiery software reinstall - how?

I would HIGHLY recommened a TRAINED XEROX TECHNICIAN FOR THIS!!!

 

I have not performed an upgrade on this model but I have done others. When I did mine I had a USB Prep Tool and a System Software CD. I had to then load the software via USB. I still would contact Xerox for support or an ASP (If they can support that type of machine).

Thank you,

Re: Fiery software reinstall - how?

it should be easy normally

you have a system software and a user software disc

the system software is bootable; so if your bios is configured to boot from disc it should work in 1 2 3

after it finishes it will ask for the user software disc

be sure to install all patches afterwards!!

Re: Fiery software reinstall - how?

I've done countless installs with EXP250's over the phone with the customer. The disc you need to boot from is the System Software 1.1

The BIOS on this machine is VERY locked down, almost 0 changeable options, its not designed to be played with. Its possible one of your discs is damaged. I'd try booting it in another DVD drive on another desktop.
