Please contact your Dell sales account team.  They can provide you
with the SNAP A11 CD which no longer is OS-based, but DOS-based.  It
will update firmwares for controllers, but no longer updates OMSA and
OS-level device drivers.  This means it will work regardless of which
OS your system runs natively.
