How to update BIOS ProLiant ML350 D02/F02 without floppy?

Hi, I want to update the BIOS, but the floppy drive won't work. Is there a cd version of the Systems ROMPaq Firmware Upgrade Diskette for HP ProLiant ML350 (D04/D02) Servers (SP24532.exe)? Thx.
Kind regards.

Hi Sven,

You can download the Firmware Maintenance CD

Hi,

Thx Prabhu and Karlo for the information.
I'm downloading the Firmware Maintenance CD.
I just have to boot from the CD and follow the instructions?

Kind regards.

Hi,
I booted the Firmware Maintenance CD, but it's not supported.
How can I do an Online Rom Flash? Thx.

Hi Sven,

Do we have an operating System installed on the server?
If yes, then we need to boot to OS and then download the Online System Rompaq to update.

Hi,

Thx for the fast reply.
I only installed Windows Server 2003 and no Compaq software. Do I have to install the ProLiant Support Pack for Microsoft Windows Server 2003 before I use the Online System Rompaq? Thx.

Kind regard,

You can install the Rompaq and then update the Proliant Support Pack.
