Upgrading firmware for Smart Array 431 Controller on COMPAQ ProLiant 1850R

Hi all. Hopefully I'm asking in the correct thread, but please feel free to let me know if I need to move this somewhere else on the forum.

I've got a COMPAQ ProLiant 1850R server which I'm currently doing some maintenance on. It has a Smart Array 431 Controller that I've been planning to upgrade.

Now, if I've understood this site correctly, I'm not able to run the new SmartStart 7.70 CD on it. How should I proceed if I want to upgrade the firmware on this Smart Array 431 Controller card? The firmware revision for it now is 1.02 (which I believe to be pretty much out of date).

On the 5.50 SmartStart CD I have, I can't find locate/find the ROM Update Utility which it seems I need to run the upgrade located on http://h18013.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/download/19069.html

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

This has been resolved. I installed Windows 2000 and upgraded with http://h18023.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/locate/20_1115.html
