Where to find System software for DL360 G4p

I have a DL360 G4p that needed the system board replaced. I do not have any of the disks that came with the system. I used the original processor over again. It is a single Xeon 3.4GHz, 2MB Cache L2 processor. I am receiving “Unsupported Processor Detected. System will only boot ROMPAQ Utility. I cannot get to the BIOS Setup no matter what I try. Finding any support software is very poor at best. I got sent to a non-English site and if I try to download what I thought was the file I needed. I could not because I need a contract to access the file.  I am hoping someone could guide me through my issue.

Thank you,
 Ken.

Hello,

You can find the drivers/firmware and diagnostic utility here.

But you will not be able to download BIOS and certain Firmware if the server is out of warranty.

Thank You!

Last version of SmartStart that fully supported the DL360 G4

THis is the latest freely available ROM update I could find

Re: Where to find System software for DL360 G4p

 

Thank you for the reply. Since the system will not boot and requires the firmware COMPAQ software, I guess I have no choice but to scrap the server out. It is such a waste of money trying to repair this unit. The money, had I known about HP's restricting software to the poor hobbyist end user, I would have purchased a different manufacture's product. It was a very poor decision on HP's part to restrict access to the software needed for a product they had sold. Especially a product long out of warranty. Yet being a hobbyist, I have over the years purchased a lot of new HP products. Sadly, from this day forward my eyes have been opened and never again will I even look at HP products. I still have a DL360 G4 in service and I am now looking at scrapping and replacing it ASAP because of HP’s policies. Even a common hobbyist cannot not afford to take terrible chances for the future.

Respectfully yours,
