1.) I think it's possible, but low power RAM is more expensive than regular RAM: if you mix them, they will all be used as regular RAM, so the advantage of low power RAM is wasted.

 

2.) You need a hard disk firmware update, which is different from the normal BIOS and RAID controller firmware updates. This will update the firmware on the actual disks.

 

I guess this is the disk firmware update you need:

Note the installation instructions: apparently the disk firmware update has not been included into the Firmware Maintenance CD for some reason.

Q 1 : Not recomended

Q2: Please update Hard Drive Firmware either download from the site for Linux:

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=fi&prodTypeId=329290&prodSeriesId=1127655&swItem=MTX-35a3acd813dd4798a77cc6eca4&prodNameId=3766952&swEnvOID=54&swLang=8&taskId=135&mode=4&idx=1

 

or if you have 9.0 or later Firmware DVD, that contains all required firmwares you may need to update it while system boot.

Boot your system from Firmware DVD/CD and select Automatic /Un attended Insallation.

Once server reboots remove CD and see if it fixes error
