Here is some new drivers and Firmwares that I have find that are newer then the once that was on the SPP.
The new drivers are
Ethernet Firmware (Only Windows) (EXE-file) Ethernet Driver (Only Windows) (EXE-file) Graphifc Drivers (Only Windows) (EXE-file)
The link also inkludes
Intelligent Provisioning 1.70.63 (All OS) (ISO-File)
If you 'll download and install the Firmware and driver for the Ethernetcard, make sure that you install the Firmware and reboot the server before you update the drivers.
The Intelligent Provisioning update is a bootable ISO-file.
So just mount the file in your iLO remote console and then choose to boot the server from the DVD (mounted ISO-file) then follow the instructions.
You can if you want donwload each file by it self or you can download all of the files in one zip-file.
If you want to download the files in a zip-file just click on the Green link that says "ZIP" at the right on the download site and the server will zip the files for you and start a download for you.
Every file is named like this HPesOwnPacketName_Version_FW/driver.exe everything so you can see the info about the files.
I'll continue to upload the newest drivers and firmwares for our beloved HPe Microsoerver gen8.
I bricked my Surface Pro 2 all by myself. I have tried various techniques from the Microsoft site. Basically, I get to a point where either my system drive is locked or I am asked for drivers so the machine will recognize drives. If I don't use a USB drive to boot, the machine goes to the UEFI screen. Any ideas or help available? - Steve
New i7-2600K system - ASRock Z68 PRO3 board, Mushkin 2 x 4GB, Crucial C300 RealSSD...
When I first put this system together, I just dropped in the SSD with the OS from my old system and after it detected and installed the new hardware, I was up and running. But a weird video thing caught my attention. The HDMI video feeding my main screen would go to white, flashing from almost black to some kind of white mess.
Ok, maybe I'll just monitor (pun intended) the situation and see how it goes since it only did this a couple times, right?
But then I ran into a file transfer problem between my desktop and WHS 2011. I was trying to transfer a 40GB folder with a DriveImage XML backup image of a recently repaired computer to my server where I keep the rest of these file types. The copy function got hung up on 'Discovering files' to be transferred. It'd just hang. So I'd kill it in Task Manager and that would crash Windows explorer.exe every time. Not a very reassuring feeling about my new system. I had thought to made sure the driver was updated via Windows update. Yes, I can hear you now. But unfortunately I didn't think to get drivers from the manufacturer's site right away, so... I had a Intel NIC sitting in a box nearby. I stuck it in and the problem disappears. Files now transfer, speeds look good. So I figure something's wrong with the ASRock board.
Between flashing video and the onboard NIC snafu, I figure I'm looking at an RMA. But then, finally, it dawns on me to check the manufacturer's site and yes, there is a newer version. So I dl and install it. What do you know? Problem solved. Geez! Where's pcdoc when I needed him? Oh, I can hear him now, "...always check the manufacturer's site for the latest drivers." Got it.
So to continue this Murphy's Law kind of day, I misplaced (deleted) an important file. The file in question was my FF json, the bookmarks backup with all my customized keywords, those short 2- and 3-letter shortcuts I use in the address bar to quickly navigate. Somehow or other, I had accidently deleted it from Dropbox. Great... Except, this episode turned out well, too, as I discovered (thankfully) that Dropbox lets you recover deleted files.
So that's how I spent my day off, locked up in an arm wrestling contest with my technology. Someone tell me why I love this stuff?
I suppose this means I should look on the manufacturer's site for video drivers, eh?
