rp7400 update

Hi all,
I have an rp7400 I need to update the PDC firmware in order to use HBA's/EVA storage. I recently found out this server is not under contract so I cant have HP CE do the update. Has anyone had any luck with this and have instructions? I cant find much on the forums/internet. The PDC is currently at 42.06 and needs to be at 43.22. I have downloaded the latest 43.43 and have a box to test on but not sure what direction to go. Thanks for any responses.

Re: rp7400 update

When you downloaded it, release notes and instructions should be included. Do you have patch or ISO file?

Hope this helps!

Re: rp7400 update

I downloaded from here. http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=86776&prodTypeId=15351&prodSeriesId=86774&swLang=13&taskId=135&swEnvOID=7

All it contained was a zip file with the firmware image. where do you download the ISO image?
