Hi All,

To create the bootable USB Key with the SPP 2017.07.01 ISO image you had in order to then run it Off-Line on your HPE ProLiant Gen9 Servers, was the latest HPE USB Key Utility used (3.0.0.0 of July, 12nd 2017) or not?

Hi,

I have extracted HPE USB Key Utility from the ISO image and it is 3.0 version.

 

Any other suggestions?

If HPE USB Key Utility 3.0.0.0 was used to create the Bootable USB Key from the SPP 2017.07.01 ISO file, then:

  1. downloaded SPP 2017.07.01 ISO file's hash (md5/sha256 or whatever required by HPE) was calculated and checked against the one HPE published (to be sure that that particular downloaded ISO file was not damaged/corrupted)?
  2. various different (Size >4GB, <32GB) USB Keys were tested to exclude USB Key hardware issue?

Hi, 

Thanks for your advise. 

I have compared MD5 checksum of the file online and the one I downloaded previously and they did not match.
