    Hi, I wonder please if anyone had luck flashing the H310 inside a R710 Dell server.. unfortunately I don't have any other machine/motherboard where I could install the card :( I can't even manage to boot freeDOS through a USB thumb drive (it's a 3.0 model). Many thanks for any suggestion!

    try using rufus to make the freedos usb drive.
    it is posible to flash while in a dell server but requires more steps. you might have to use the UEFI system to do the flash i do not remember enough about the R710 to tell you for sure what method is required.

    I'm not sure if the x10 percs are any different but I can flash an h700 in an optiplex.. If you've got one of those laying around, give it a shot.

    Ah, saw you don't have an alternate system.. Old optiplex 380s or 755s go for like 50 bucks if you can swing it. I usually flash from windows too.
