unable to bleed brakes with pressure bleeder

Hi folks. Just replaced the rubber brakes lies on the 98 740iL. Afterwards I hooked up the pressure bleeder and cracked open the lines - in the rear a little comes out very slowly, in the front next to nothing. Ended up having my wife press the pedal with the pressure bleeder still connected to get the air out which worked as expected. No DSC Codes on the car.

I would like to do a full flush including the ABS as the fluid looks well used.

1) any idea why I can't do a quick bleed with he pressure bleeder?
2) looking around folks on other chassis are doing a bleed with INPA and have brake bleed options under the Chassis->DSC/ASC menu - I didn't grab a screen shot, but that option isn't there - there are options like primary and secondary pump, intake and outtake valve.
3) switched to ISTA+ and under service function all I have for this area is ABL search which pops a dialog to do a text search - did a text search with Procedure checked and don't see a brake bleed.

I've seen videos using DIS, which I don't have installed, and based on the write ups not sure I would like to do unless absolutely needed.

any help would be appreciated!

thanks
