Anyone successfully install Server 2012 R2 Essentials on a Microserver N36L,N40L,N54L ?

Isn't it on the USB flash drive? If not, it should be in one of the downloads. I mean, if you have the BIOS update program, you should also have the ROM file. Just rename it to something else and then rename the modded BIOS to the name of the original file.

Hi stuck doing the win8 to 8.1 upgrade and reading back I need the HP bios upgrade, I can't get it from the HP site as warrenty ran out in 11/14 and won't give me it.

 

Any body got a link that works not a hacked version pls and I'm in the UK

 

Than any issues upgrading to win from 8.1?

 

Thanks

Somewhat true. The server will boot into the OS but then it starts a Powershell script to configure the network card and will fail since none exist. This Powershell thing did not exist pre R2.

 

I had no problems installing R2 on my EX470, sweet thing.

 

Hello Diehard,

 

I'm having issues installing R2 on my EX470 and I was hoping you could walk me thru some of the settings you made in the BIOS before you installed. I am getting an error " Windows could not find the partition or create one, please check log files" and I also got an error 'Windows cannot be installed to this disk. This computer's hardware may not support booting to this disk. Ensure the disk's controller is enabled in the computer's BIOS menu.'

 

I have tried to segregate the issue since I have two EX470's and two different drives and I am still having the same issue on both.

 

I was thinking it might be a driver issue, but cannot find proper drivers for this device. Any recommendations?

      Hi 
      My HP Proliant Microserver Gen 8 won't install HP Tools when I have running HP Smart Update Manager. 
      even when I have trying to install via Intelligent Provising, Windows Server 2019.
       
      Se image below 🙂 That's I missing.. ;-(

      Hi everyone.
       
      New to this forum.
      I have a gen8 microserver running at home, where I have installed an SSD in the ODD sata slot. On the SSD I have installed Ubuntu Server 18.04.
      I have then created a logical volume witht the raid controller and can then boot to the SSD. So far so good.
      My problem emerges when I reboot the system. The logical volume disapears and it gives the error: "boot logical drive is configured but is missing or offline".
      I then have to go into the utility and reconfigure the logical volume. Kind of annoying, when trying to run a headless setup.

      Greetings,
       
      I'm new to the HPMSG8 world and so far I'm loving it. I have a stock Xeon with 16G of aftermarket memory with iLO patched to 2.70. Next up is adding a RAID card, so I can put my boot SSD on the onboard RAID. I picked up a LSI SAS9211-8i on Amazon, but am struggling to flash it to IT mode on the MicroServer. Is this even possible? Unfortunately, the only other system I have with PCI slots is 32-bit.
       
      Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.

      FYI, I have just installed Windows Server 2019 Standard (Desktop Experience) using the latest (WS2016) HP AMD chipset & VGA driver. Everything is recognised in Device Manager and stable.

      I need to update the firmware on a HP Proliant Microserver Remote Access Card installed in my N40L.
       
      Can someone please explain what I need to do to create a boot device that will update the firmware on the Remote Access Card?
       
      Thanks
