Re: RP8420 to Rx 8620?

Hi

I see a bunch of stuff here

http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/11849_div/11849_div.HTML#Upgrades

So here are the components that a customer will need to order to do a board level upgrade to these new servers from an rp8420 server:

HP 9000 rp8420 Upgrades to HP Integrity rx8620 Servers


The HP 9000 rp8420 Servers were designed to be easily upgradeable to Intel Itanium 2, HP mx2 and future PA RISC processors. With the release of the Intel Itanium 2 and the HP mx2 processors, HP 9000 rp8420 Server customers can now upgrade their systems as desired. So here are the components that a customer will need to order to do a board level upgrade to these new servers from an rp8420:

A chassis upgrade kit:


No new cell boards and memory: Cell boards are the same between PA 8800/PA-8900 servers and Intel Madison 2 and HP mx2-based servers.

Add in I/O cards: A total of 33 I/O adapters were available for the rp8420 platform. The vast majority of these, 28, are compatible and can be used when upgrading from an rp8420 to a rx8620 platform.

A5160A A7012A
AB286A


Return credits: If the customer returns his old cell boards, processor modules or core I/O boards, they can get a return credit:

rp8420/rx8620, use product AB328A.

Hi

HP does list these as customer field replaceable units. Why don't you contact a seller and ask about instructions or hire a 3d party?

There is no bios in Intanium. There is an EFI but there are also HP CE only commands in the EFI that probably applys to this.
