HP patch best practice

I have a DL380 G6 which needs patch cp010795.exe applied to it to resolve a known issue. I am also going to patch the server with the current support pack and firmware. What is the best practice for doing this?

With another server vendor I as always told to update drivers and then firmware.

Run Smart Update Manager from latest HP Smart Start CD, update drivers and firmware to recommended version. If needed download latest version from HP website. Then reboot.
Also check any message on booting. They may offer to update firmware for hard disks if you update firmware for RAID controllers in prev. step.
