CREATING A DRIVER UPDATE USB-KEY

MAKING DRIVER UPDATE USB-KEY UNDER A LINUX-LIKE OS:

  • Save the "hpdsa-<version>.<OSupdate>.x86_64.dd.gz" file into a temporary directory. Use GUNZIP to extract "hpdsa-<version>.<OSupdate>.x86_64.dd" from this file into the same directory.
  • Insert the USB-Key. Unmount USB-Key if it was automounted.
  • Write the hpdsa-<version>.<OSupdate>.x86_64.dd file to the the USB-Key device.  (Ex. USB-Key is /dev/sdc)

dd if=hpdsa-<version>.<OSupdate>.x86_64.dd of=/dev/sdc1)

INSTALLATION

At the initial OS installation screen be sure to:

  • Press "e" to edit grub and append the following install parameters to the "linuxefi" line.

modprobe.blacklist=ahci inst.dd

  • IMPORTANT: Remove the USB-Key once the driver has been installed to prevent the OS installer from including the USB-Key as part of the OS storage.
