This self-extracting archive includes the flash utility AFU.EXE, the BIOS image files,  the Readme file, and the Array Configuration Utility (ACU) for DOS named ACU.EXE.

Caution Caution:   If your Adaptec controller is currently running firmware/BIOS version 16501, or you have arrays that were originally created under version 16501, please review ASK article# 16914 prior to performing this upgrade.
Installation Instruction:  

The controller firmware can be flashed using Adaptec Storage Manager (ASM) or the flash utility AFU that is included with this download.

AFU Instructions:
Once the files are extracted please copy each *.ufi file individually to a separate floppy disk. If this is not done, you may encounter read errors from one of the files when flashing the controller.
The expanded files can also be copied to a USB device or CD-R.
Shut down the operating system and reboot to DOS from a bootable floppy disk, USB device or CD-R. Insert the media with the update files. Run the flash utility program named AFU.EXE included in this download to backup the current BIOS and flash the new BIOS image.
For instructions on how to update the firmware using Adaptec Storage Manager (ASM), please refer to the ASM User's Guide or the ASM online help.
