Edited , Thanks :good:

Seems to be the thing lately with firmware updates and fixes being Windows based , i've lost count the amount of times i've seen people kick off these days because a Bios update for their new Motherboard is only being offered as a Windows download so i'm not surprised it's a windows tool for testing the firmware. :)
