ROMPaq on ml350 G3 after installing dual ch. U320SCSI HBA WW

The Dual chaneel SCSI HBA has been added into ML350 G3 server.

The installation manual instructs to create ROMPaq from StartSmart bootable CD but I did not find any option to make diskette there.

When searching for a SW on HP site I only found diskettes already prepared and I do not understand well - our server has had SCSI array before (we have 2 disks in mirror). now we need to update ROM with new card - I did not find any particular ROMPaq for this configuration (with both array and PCI SCSI HBA card).

So is there a SW utility that I can use to generate ROMPaq diskette on my server or do I need to download the diskette from HP site ?

The HBA install manual says: in order for the installation to be complete the system ROM (if necessary ) must be upgraded and the new drivers for the operating system must be installed.....system ROM can be upgraded by flashing the ROM using a special HP utility called System ROMPaq. This utility replaces the existing contents of the ROM with another version stored in a disk file... The ROMPaq utilities must be run from diskettes..
