Default BIOS PROBLEM on Intel MB SC450NX with XEON PROCESSOR

BIOS PROBLEM on Intel MB SC450NX with XEON PROCESSOR

* Needed urgently: Intel System Setup Utility (SSU) contained in CD
* Advise on Intel Server Crash – using MS W2K Advance Server

PROBLEM DESCRIPTION
Our site was working fine and acting as expected
We rebooted for maintenance and got error message indicating software or hardware failure. Previous to error message and on blue background there was a screen with a specific error which flashed to quick. To try and read the contents rebooted several times until it stopped showing anything.
The screen remains blank with only a flash of the first 5 lines of the regular boot up.

The indications are that the BIOS has been corrupted.

We have followed the procedure described on Intel online document “Server System Product Guide SC450NX MP” page 151-153
http://www.intel.com/support/motherb...X/70005902.HTM

However we are stuck in that we do not have the System Setup Utility (SSU) and the Graphical user Interface we need as indicated in page 46 of the same Guide.

We might be barking up the wrong tree and this is not the solution to the main problem, but we must at this stage follow it up and restore accessibility to solve any other problem.

Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.
** If somebody has the CD please zip and email the needed “System Set Up” utility and
the Flash Memory
** If somebody can burn a CD and send me a copy I will pay for the cost.

Many thanks in advance
