Can anyone give me a quick explanation as to what SP's are for/do, are they new drivers/firmware but in offline mode or something?

You basically boot off the SPP image and it updates all your HP firmware + HP drivers to the latest version inside the image without needing internet access. It is a massive ISO because it contains all the drivers and firmware for all the currently supported ProLiants and OSes.

Hmm, I updated ILO to 2.10 and Broadcom NICs firmware with this SPP.

Now I can't boot Microserver from USB or SD card :(

Resetting ILO, BIOS, reflashing ILO back to 2.03 and firmware switching doesn't help. Intelligent Provisioning is also gone. WTF?

I've mentioned this bug in another thread. You need to unplug your microserver and plug it back in again. That fixes it.

 I didn't see that post. But unplugging was the first step which I tried. It helps to 1) boot from external USB,  2) launch Intelligent Provisioning for one(!) time, where I even can see microsd card.

But there is no way to boot from internal sdcard or usb. After unsuccessful boot, the Intelligent Provisioning also goes mad in different ways - it simply doesn't start, freezes or launch smart storage manager instead of full Intelligent Provisioning. It seems that there is some kind of internal boot devices "mismap".

Odd. My experience with it has been that it just stops booting from the SD card inside my microserver. It tries to boot from the HDs instead so I get the usual error about no OS found. Unplugging the microserver and then plugging it back in again has always fixed it for me. IP didn't work either until I unplugged + plugged it back in.

 

It always shows the SD card as being present when looking in the iLO web interface as well.

 

Have you tried temporarily removing the card then booting?

Yes. I have almost full-time s..x now with removing card, usb, disks, power, bios changes, rebooting etc. :)  I'm also very happy with Gen8 long boot time.
