How to update

TID 7007012: How to update Mobility

Note that the documentation tells you to: Browse to Software | Patch CD Update. Click Next on the Welcome screen. Select "Local ISO image" and click Next. But the option to select "Local ISO" will not appear unless the system is fully patched. Ie you need to run the system updates first, before you can select the Local ISO (or CD/DVD for that matter)
