I'm trying to update my old lion system (poweredge 7150, 4x ia64 B2
733mhz, 3GB) to the new suse 7.2 release
it is running suse 7.1 beta wich is booted with eli from efi.
When I try to boot the new linux distr form CD it uses elilo wich hangs
efi before getting to the kernel unpack.
I tried to boot the kernel with eli but efi also hangs when copying the
relevant files from CD to LS120.

I remember there was something about updating bios and/or efi before
using elilo. 
I have efi 0.99 and bios S46000AC4A.86B.0069.B.
Can someone give a hint where to get a new version of efi and bios?
