ML30 Gen 9 SDCARD

I have just bought a second hand Gen9 ML30 I have tried numerous times to update firmweare, install intelligant provisioning etc and all have failed, I noticed the server has an empty sdcard slot on the motherboard should this be populated? and if so can I use any sdcard? 

Any help would be appreciated

Hi,

this Slot is Typical empty.

It can be used to boot an Operating System from SD Card.

Most times ESXi Servers boot from SD Card.

Hi the original problem was an Ilo error at boot, I have been trying to get some help to help me resolve this from the forums for about 3 weeks with no success,. The problem is at boot i get a ilo cannot communicate error, I have tried updating the firmware "it wont let me install it", firware update from service pack says the same, I have tried to install intelligent provisioning and again this failed, I have tried reseting ilo, resting bios defaults, resteing settings via the motherboard service switches all to no avail. To be honest I am getting to the point I am going to give up.
