Re: clone dl360 g4 on g3

Hello Dave,

I don't see a reason why it would'nt work.

1.As you rightly pointed,5i and 6i card use same driver -> cp006263

2.Ethernet drivers are the same -> cp006641 which supports both NC7781(DL360g3) and NC7782(DL360 G4)

3.iLO is same

4.Integrated ATI RAGE XL Video Controller with 8-MB SDRAM Video Memory on both

The only difference i saw is the chipset.

DL360G4 -> Intel E7520 chipset
DL360G3 -> ServerWorks GC -LE Chipset

Not too sure if this would cause an issue.

Ensure that there are no pci cards on the target node.

It should work, just re aply the PSP as soon as you migrate the OS and it will load the proper driver for teh chipset.

BSOD was going to happen, So far I haven't seen any case in wich migrating from a new server to an old server hasn't caused a BSOD. What you can try is, once the ghosting has been completed, boot in safe mode and apply the latest PSP available at http://h18023.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/locate/69_4764.html#0

PSP Is the Proliant Support Pack which contains every single driver that the server might need to work fine.

PSP -> Collection of latest device drivers and HP utilities.

Does it load Windows after a reboot or still BSOD?
