Some downloads:

 

recovery CD/DVD is available here: https://h20392.www2.hp.com/portal/swdepot/displayProductInfo.do?productNumber=5697-7216a

 

Some kind of software is available here: https://h20392.www2.hp.com/portal/swdepot/displayProductInfo.do?productNumber=5697-7855

 

You may run into problems running "Normal" DL160 G5 HP stuff on your DL160 G5 Storage Server.

Re: SmartStart For ProLiant DL-160 G5

Hi,

 

if you create two logical drives (yes you can do that) in one array, you need to create them of a specific size (AFAIK the recovery DVD only proceeds if the logical drives are of a certain size). Which sizes I do not know, this varies between the models but should be possible to find somewhere..

 

Or, you could delete all the arrays (try the eraze option in BIOS or smartstart) and let the recovery DVD create the
array and logical drives.

 

Why do you specifically need 7.50?

There is a 7.51 - perhaps that works? I haven't looked into which servers are supported with that but the DL160 G5 isn't thaat old..
