  • there are some BIOS updates that won't allow you to go the latest version, a minimum version is required to apply certain versions

You will have to do it via a scripted install. You will have to do some intermediate upgrades and not jump straight from A0 to A7. Just download the bios upgrades from dell and setup a scripted install manually.
