Flash firmware on 5500.

I was told by someone on these forums that in order to use the Smart Start 5.5 CD to get my server set up I need to flash the firmware. Can anyone give me some detail on this? Do I do it TFTP? Diskette? Where do I get the firmware from?

Re: Flash firmware on 5500.

To flash server firmware you just boot from
Firmware Maintenance CD
Here you can find all drivers/firmware for Proliant 5500

You need Firmware Maintenance CD 7.30
http://h18004.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/download/22722.html

Last Firmware Maintenance CD version is 7.40, but Proliant 5500 don't listed as supported for 7.40 version, so use 7.30 version, anyway, no new firmware released for this old server.
