Firmware for HP BL890 i4 npar in C7000 encl. & Issue on booting from DVD drive

 

Please,

where can i get a comprehensive firmware list for download for my new HP BL890 i4 npar in C7000 encl.

 

I could boot from HP-UX DCE 11.3 using ILO Virtual media, but not from DVD drive. This is the 3rd DVD drive i have just tried.

 

Please advice.

Server Firmware bundles are here:

The server cannot boot from some 3th party drives.

Hope this helps!

The AT120A (HP Integrity USB External DVD-RW drive) is listed as a supported option for the server.
IMHO an installation from a real DVD drive is much slower compared to virtual media or even network based install. By the way, the advanced ILO license is already included.

Hope this helps!
