>i have read this specs before, but it talk about HP Server rp7410 Upgrades to HP 9000 rp7420 Server,

Not really. The document is about rp7410 and rp7420.

Read Configuration section:

You can find out the memory options, Supported I/O Cards, Internal Disk Drive, Supported Processors for both rp7410 and rp7420.

From the very same document, you can find out this:

Without adding another cell, you can add 4 more processors (resulting a total of 16 cores). If you have PA-RISC processors, then you must install only PA-RISC processors.

The maximum memory without the second cell board is 64 GB per cell board.

In the memory configuration section you could find listed the available memory p/n.

Re: server upgrade

Did you checked the Internal Disk Drives section?

You have available both 10k and 15k HDD, up to 300G. P/n you can take from the specified table.
