DL380 G4 Firmware update fails.

On boot, the primary ROM fails and the backup is loaded (message to run ROMPaq).

I've tried running ROMPaq from floppy to load newest ROM and also original, but in either case the process never completes.

I've also tried to update the ROM using a software maintenance ISO (md5sum checked out) without success (seems to timeout at 99%).

System Maintenance Switches S1-S6 are all off.

Is there anything else I can check? Any suggestions?

Marc,

You could try clearing NVRAM and CMOS via Switch 6, then booting SmartStart to reload after changing switch 6 back to disabled position.

Good Luck,

Louis

Thanks for the suggestion Louis, but no change.

HP is sending me a new system board.
