Once you locate the fix its a zip file as I recall, when unzipped it is
a DOS executable, you can make a driver diskette and then put
the patcher on that (or a USB drive if you have one that is bootable)
then run the patcher from DOS.

I am not sure this is the source of your problem, but absolutely any
SuperMicro system that has an 82573 should have this fix applied.
