HP image writing utility?

Sorry to have to post this here, but I cannot seem to find this on the HP site....

HP has a (Windows) utility for writing image files to a variety of media, but I don't recall where I saw the reference or where to grab it - can anyone assist?

I have dd for Windows (http://www.chrysocome.net/dd - and that works for me) but most times I am supporting those more.... challenged than I and a purpose-built utility would be better...

TIA
Don

Shalom Don,

You aren't getting any help from HP posting to a peer to peer forum that HP provides for customer to customer support.

There is a windows forum in which you might get a recommendation of a third party product that works on your OS. I'm simply a bit mystified why you thought posting to a Linux forum would provide help on this issue.

Try posting here.

If you want help from HP try contacting HP support.

OK, well, does it matter that I'm writing diskboot.img to a flash device so I can install RHEL from an NFS share??

To add apparently needed clarity -

This is a utility that, at one point, HP provided as part of LINUX downloads for installation of firmware via bootable media. I thought it was referenced in an older iLO update, perhaps I will just have to keep digging into older LINUX PSPs till I find it myself....

You might take a look at the Smart Start Scripting Toolkit for Linux. The toolkit can be booted from PXE CD/DVD media, or USB drive key
