Looking for SmartStart version that works with DL185G5

I have a few DL185G5 servers that are running the AMD Opteron CPU. The latest 8.30 version of SmartStart says it does not support this server configuration. I am trying to configure the P800 RAID controllers. Does anyone know what version I should be using and where to find it?

Thanks,
David

SmartStart does not support the 100-series ProLiant servers. The P800 drivers would be available on the DL185 G5 Support CD. The Array Configuration Utility (ACU) is also available as a download. See the driver and software downloads page at http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DriverDownload.jsp?prodNameId=3579901〈=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=15351&prodSeriesId=3579900&taskId=135

To configure SA RAID controler first download HP Array Configuration Utility (ACU) Offline CD for Smart Array from http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=15351&prodSeriesId=3579900&prodNameId=3579901&swEnvOID=1005&swLang=8&mode=2&taskId=135&swItem=MTX-f0790470403f4da3bd94126308 and burn that iso image to a blank CD and then boot server from that CD.

Be sure to upgrade Firmware first. You can use Firmware Maintennce CD or you can create bootable USB to upgrade firmware. Version 8.50 have some problems so use version 8.60 http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=15351&prodSeriesId=3884082&prodNameId=3884083&swEnvOID=1005&swLang=13&mode=2&taskId=135&swItem=MTX-124beffbed3842cea0b9b3f962
