Question Coolant Bleed Procedure - Is it possible?

I wanted to bleed my coolant system a few weeks ago and had no luck with the "set ac to auto, max temp, lowest blow, hold petal for 15sec" (via the bmw procedure PDF) or the other slight variations I've seen on forums.

I had my car in the shop this week (#N63life) and my mechanic actually said that the V8 F07 was the only N63 that can't have the water pump / aux water pump flushed with this process.

Is there an alternative? How is it normally done on an F07? ISTA? Do I just need to go through the hell of figuring that software install again?
