DL140 G3 Software/Firmware/Driver Update issue

I have a ProLiant DL140 G3 running windows server 2003 SP2 x86, when I go and download any of the HP drivers/firmware/software from HP for this model and attempt to install I get the following in the install window:

The software will not be installed on this system because the required hardware is not present in the system or the software/firmware doesn't apply to this system.

Strange! The server is definetly DL140G3 and also says so when I run 'System Information' in Windows. Not sure why I can't update.

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Have you tried the Firmware Maintenance CD?

and/or the latest Proliant Support Pack?

Re: DL140 G3 Software/Firmware/Driver Update issue

I considered it, but then noticed that the PSP and the Firmware cd are not made for this model (not on the downloads page). Will it be ok to run these cds on the server still despite this?

Re: DL140 G3 Software/Firmware/Driver Update issue

I ran the firmware cd this weekend as well as the PSP pack and updated anything it detected that was superseded on the cd. I have tried the latest versions of the drivers/firmware/software such as : HP NC-Series Broadcom 1Gb Driver for Windows Server 2003 ; HP Network Configuration Utility for Windows Server 2003; HP Embedded SATA RAID Controller Driver for Windows 2000/Windows Server 2003; HP NC-Series Broadcom Online Firmware Upgrade Utility for Windows Server 2003/2008 etc

Hi Jeff,

The software support disk would contain all relevant software for the server.

The link for the ISO image is
