ROMID Error When Upgrading BIOS on PXI/PXIe Controller

  • PXI Controller

Issue Details

I am trying to upgrade my BIOS using the downloads available from the NI website. I am getting the error ROM file ROMID is not compatible with existing BIOS ROMID.

Solution

This can be caused by using incorrect BIOS upgrade files. Check that the BIOS file is an exact match for:
  • Whether the controller is PXI or PXIe
  • Number of cores (for example, quad core BIOS files will not work on dual core version of controller, even if the model numbers match)
