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?

Hey @Sam Uilberton 

 

Elaborate on your question.  This thread has 21 pages and has been dormant for 3 years.  Thanks.

      Hey guys,
       
      Has anyone around here been successful in setting up Proxmox on a Gen8 using a HBA for storage?

      Hey guys,
       
      As of June 2020, what are the latest versions of firmware for HP Microserver Gen8 to be installed on the system itself? Also do any other components have updatable firmware/os-independent software?
       
      So far my list is as follows:
      BIOS - J06 (04/04/2019) iLO 4 - v2.73 (11/02/2020) Intelligent Provisioning - v1.71 (20/02/2019)  
      and I guess the following could also be added (although both out of date):
      Smart Update Manager (HP SUM) - v8.1.0 (21/12/2017) Service Pack for ProLiant (06/11/2017)  
      Date formated as DD/MM/YYYY.
       
      I believe all the B120i Smart Storage stuff is part of Intelligent Provisioning.

      Is it possible to install any PCIe SATA card and boot from an attached SSD instead of internal MicroSD/USB/ODD?
       
      Are there any special requirements needed to boot from an SSD connected to a cheap PCIe SATA III card?
       
      Are there any limitations?

      Looking for a quick answer here from someone in the know...
       
      I upgraded some of the internals of my Gen8 server and at the same time I did a BIOS reset as I had forgotten the password that I had set years ago. When booting back up the upgraded hardware was detected and fine but I received Error 1784 - Drive Array - Logical Drive Failure. I believe this is due to a setting change in the BIOS and not anything hardware related. I have gone into IP/SSA and see the array needs to be rebuilt. I had all drives configured as single RAID0. It says all data will be lost if I reconfigure this but I remember reading somewhere on here that the data will be fine if I reconfigure as RAID0.
       
      I do have a backup of course, but it’s not a high availability mirror and will take some time to get back the way I had it, so just want to know if it’s safe to reconfigure the RAID0 without erasing the drives. I have tried pulling the drives out and connecting them to another PC and they are fine. Can anyone tell me which options to choose to get these back to normal and remove the flashing red light?
       
      Thanks 😶

      Hi all,
       
      I am new to the server world (please be gentle) and I desperately need some help!
       
      I recently acquired a HP MicroServer Gen8. Bays 1 & 2 have 1TB SSD each and I believe they are setup in a RAID 1 config (not sure how to check) and have windows server 2012 installed.
       
      Bays 3 & 4 are empty and I recently purchased a 4TB WD Blue Hard Drive and managed to install windows 10 onto it via a separate computer.
       
      I've now inserted the 4TB Hard drive into bay 3 and want windows 10 to load up, but its not doing that....it keeps loading up windows server 2012 thats in bays 1/2 hard drives.
       
      How can I choose which bay to boot windows from? I like it to boot from Bay 3 most of the time that has windows 10.
       
      In normal computers, it was simple to organise the boot order via BIOS, but with the Gen8 its seems very complex with HP's own BIOS...etc and it's starting to give me a headache!
       
      Any help from anyone will be really appreciated!
       
      A simple easy to follow instructions will suffice.
