x32 bit Hp DL 380G5 -> x64 - SmartStartCD question

Hi,

We have a Hp DL380 G5 running MS exchange 2003 server.

The server was setup using Hp SmartStart CD x32 bit.

We need to format this server and install Windows 2008 (x64) - and use it for exchange 2010.

I noticed that the HP cd's come with x32 and x64 SmartStart CD's.

I did delete the logical drives (array); and create a new one using the x64 SmartStart CD.


1) What else do I need to do with the SmartStart x64 Cd - as I couldn't find any other options (apart from testing/troubleshooting).

2) Does the firmware have to be installed again ??


Thanks

Hi,

Yes if firmware not updated in last few months, use Smart Update DVD and update firmware:

And, start the assisted installed installation from the smart start 64 bit CD.
