          • HP Virus Throttle for Windows Server™ 2003
          • HP Virus Throttle for Windows Server™ 2003 x64 Editions
        • Because the drivers and utilities listed above will not be updated in the next release of the Windows 2003 PSP or in SmartStart versions beyond version 7.91, SmartStart 7.91 and Windows 2003 PSP 7.91 provided the baseline support for the following servers:

                  Making a physical CD from an ISO image file
                  Download the file to a temporary directory and extract the ISO image to that directory.

                  To create a CD from this ISO image, you must use a software utility capable of writing an ISO file to a recordable media such as CD-R.

                    Note: Simply copying the ISO file to a CD-R will NOT result in a usable CD. HP recommends you run MD5 Checksum on the Zip file and/or ISO image prior to burning the CD. HP also recommends that you turn the verify feature "ON".

                  Notes:

                  For more information on New Product Support, please visit the SmartStart 8.00 New Product Support page.

                    HP BladeSystem servers (BL series) utilize the software contained in the HP ProLiant Support Packs (PSPs). PSPs are available on the SmartStart CD.

                    HP ProLiant Essentials Rapid Deployment Pack (RDP), SmartStart Scripting Toolkit and SmartStart 7.xx deploy HP BladeSystem servers. SmartStart 7.00 and later provides assisted installation support for HP ProLiant BL Servers by utilizing the I/O port with an attached USB CD-ROM device.

                    SmartStart is not delivered standard with these servers, but can be a useful addition to RDP - the recommended deployment solution for HP BladeSystem servers. The CD can be used to create a server profile that can easily be copied and redistributed via RDP.

                    SmartStart supports the deployment of the HP ProLiant DL380 G3 Packaged Cluster but does not deploy the full clustering solution. For more information on deploying a full clustering solution, visit the HP ProLiant Clusters page.

                    For a quick overview of the SmartStart standard features, please visit the SmartStart Quick Specs.

                          • SmartStart version 7.91 was the last release that contains Windows® 2000 PSP. Windows 2000 PSP has not been updated since version 7.60 and will continue to be available on the web for download.
                          • SmartStart and Windows 2003 PSP 7.91 provided the baseline support for the following drivers/utilities. Therefore, these drivers and utilities will not be included in the next release of Windows 2003 PSP or SmartStart assisted install:
                            • HP ProLiant CSB-6 ATA-100 IDE RAID Driver for Windows 2000/Windows Server™ 2003 (lsicsb6.sys) - CP006269

                            • HP Virus Throttle for Windows Server™ 2003 x64 Editions
                          • Because the drivers and utilities listed above will not be updated in the next release of the Windows 2003 PSP or in SmartStart versions beyond version 7.91, SmartStart 7.91 and Windows 2003 PSP 7.91 provided the baseline support for the following servers:

                      • Installation Instructions

                        To ensure the integrity of your download, HPE recommends verifying your results with this SHA-256 Checksum value:

                        6cf5e1fb34892be855d674bb737ef7463240f2245861fe7fb5322bd90996f178 smartstart-8.00-0-x64.zip

                        Reboot Requirement:
                        Reboot is not required after installation for updates to take effect and hardware stability to be maintained.


                        Installation:
                        Contents of this ZIP file:

                        • Readme.txt
                        • CD ISO image
                        ISO IMAGE MD5 CHECKSUM:

                            ZIP FILE MD5 CHECKSUM:
                              e59d477afb55337dd0d1589b4e70be75

                                    Making a physical CD from an ISO image file
                                    Download the file to a temporary directory and extract the ISO image to that directory.

                                    To create a CD from this ISO image, you must use a software utility capable of writing an ISO file to a recordable media such as CD-R.

                                      Note: Simply copying the ISO file to a CD-R will NOT result in a usable CD. HP recommends you run MD5 Checksum on the Zip file and/or ISO image prior to burning the CD. HP also recommends that you turn the verify feature "ON".

                                    CD labeling: For reference purposes, please label your resulting CD as follows:

                                      SmartStart CD Release 8.10 x64

                                    For more information on New Product Support, please visit the SmartStart 8.00 New Product Support page.

                                      HP BladeSystem servers (BL series) utilize the software contained in the HP ProLiant Support Packs (PSPs). PSPs are available on the SmartStart CD.

                                      HP ProLiant Essentials Rapid Deployment Pack (RDP), SmartStart Scripting Toolkit and SmartStart 7.xx deploy HP BladeSystem servers. SmartStart 7.00 and later provides assisted installation support for HP ProLiant BL Servers by utilizing the I/O port with an attached USB CD-ROM device.

                                      SmartStart is not delivered standard with these servers, but can be a useful addition to RDP - the recommended deployment solution for HP BladeSystem servers. The CD can be used to create a server profile that can easily be copied and redistributed via RDP.

                                      SmartStart supports the deployment of the HP ProLiant DL380 G3 Packaged Cluster but does not deploy the full clustering solution. For more information on deploying a full clustering solution, visit the HP ProLiant Clusters page.

                                      For a quick overview of the SmartStart standard features, please visit the SmartStart Quick Specs.

                                      • Starting with SmartStart CD version 8.10, the "Diagnosis" tool within HP Insight Diagnostics will be available in the Offline Edition of HP Insight Diagnostics version 8.1.1.  Previously, Smart Disk Array "Diagnosis" tool was only available in the Online Editions of HP Insight Diagnostics delivered via ProLiant Support Packs.
