HP Gen 10 Micro Server Bios Update???

Recommended Posts

Phil Croxford

Hi,

 

Not sure if this is a taboo subject?? but delete if needed.

I have bought a Gen 10 Micro Server for my home so i can run a Plex Server in house. i have all the drivers and updates that i need from the HP website

but gone and noticed that the Bios update i need from what i can gather i need a contract? I'm not sure what to do?

how do i get the bios update for this server?

 

when i bought this server its running on 5.12 version with a build date of 05/25/2017 so my bios is well out of date.

 

can any one guide me in the right direction to get the update?

 

thanks

You can download BIOS for HP servers if your server is within warranty or you have a service contract. You just need to set up an service account with HP and add your MS Gen10 to that account. Then you will be able to download the BIOS.

Just noted that there's a new BIOS out for Gen10.
 
I haven't flashed it yet, but this addition in the release notes might make some people happy:
 
- Integrate Marvell RAID utility into BIOS shell.

      Any experience & suggestions for a 4k BluRay Optical drive that would fit in the top of the MicroServer?

      I also posted this on the HPE forums.
       
      Just bought my first HP Microserver and got a decent deal on a Gen10 x3421.  I am using a USB key to try and install either CentOS or RHEL 7 on it and neither install sees any of the disks in the front slots.  I am using 1TB WD Caviar Green drives.  I have also tried a Seagate drive but nothing seems to work.
       
      I have gone back and forth between EUFI and Legacy hoping that would help.  Nothing.
       
      I am currently installing on a 500B USB drive and hope to see if the drives are visible when I fully boot.
       
      I also looked through the drivers and firmware and did not see anything directly related to my problem.  I was going to download the SPP but couldn't igure out how to register my system manually to allow me to download the SPP.
       
      Am I missing anything obvious or does the system not yet support RHEL 7 or CentOS 7?
       
      Thanks for any information.

      Hi Folks,
       
      I am hoping that you can help with an issue I am having with my new HP Microserver Gen 10. Apologies if I am posting in the wrong place. 
      The microserver CPU is constantly running at 100%. It occasionally dips but normally is maxed out. I have build the server from new using Samsung SSD drives in a Raid 1 configuration initially. I have also tried the following.
       
      1. Single SSD with windows 10 Pro
      2. Single SDD with Server 2016
      3. Raid 1 with Server 2016.
      4. Single SATA with Windows 10 pro.
       
      I have updated the firmware. I have downloaded all the latest drivers from HP's portal.
       
      I have tried to get support from HP but they are providing one excuse after another to explain why they cant support the server. Currently the server is about a month or so old.
       
      HP Support responses..
       
      1. Windows 10 isn't supported.. ( Despite having windows 10 drivers for this server on their portal)
      2. SSD drives are not supported
      3. SATA drives are not supported unless they have HP branding. ( The Gen 10 is being sold on Amazon with Western Digital drives included)
       
      We have tried killing of several services in Windows 10 as per articles that we have found online. We have set the Virtual Memory to refresh on reboot.
       
      None of the above have achieved anything. 
       
      As a result of the CPU running constantly at 100% the system is unbearably slow and cant be used to run even the most basic of tasks.
       
      It looks like we have been left holding an expensive tin box.
       
      I have attached a screen dump showing the CPU utilization. 
       
      Any help or advice at this point would be greatly appreciated.
       
      Kind Regards
      Carl
