Cisco ACS re-imaging with CIMC

The Cisco 3415 ACS appliances came pre-loaded with 5.8 and I need to re-image to 5.4. Looking at the documentation below it looks like the two main options involve CIMC or installing from USB. Can I enable CIMC from serial console port connection? Or is KVM access required?
The devices are at a distant location and the less need for remote hands the easier it all is.

Or is there a means to entirely downgrade the device via the management GUI, console or SSH connection that does not require CIMC?

Thank you.

You can enable CIMC by connecting the port to a network running DHCP.  The CIMC interface will obtain an IP then you can web-browse to the CIMC and do everything you need from there.  You'll be able to mount the ACS ISO via remote KVM through the browser.
