For Available Support Documentation:

Contents of this ZIP file:

  • DVD ISO image
  • Readme.txt

Making a physical DVD from an ISO image file
Download the files to a temporary directory.

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

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

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

  • Intelligent Provisioning recovery media 2.80

Copying the ISO Image file to the HPE USB Key Utility For Windows

The HPE USB Key Utility is a Windows application that allows you to copy the Intelligent Provisioning recovery media to a USB memory key.  You can then install Intelligent Provisioning from a USB key instead of from the DVD.  To download the HPE USB Key Utility for Windows, click here:  HPE USB Key Utility for Windows.

Important:

The Intelligent Provisioning recovery media is only needed when you would like to manually install the software onto a Gen9 server.  Intelligent Provisioning is already embedded on your Gen9 server and accessible by pressing the F10 key at server POST.  To update Intelligent Provisioning, you may go to the Firmware Update feature in the Maintenance page of Intelligent Provisioning.  For product information, go to http://www.hpe.com/servers/intelligentprovisioning

  • Some HPE-Branded Windows media may not install drivers when Datacenter is selected - the most recent media includes several updates that will interrupt the driver installation and cause missing drivers or yellow bangs in Device Manager.  If installing Datacenter from HPE media - be sure to install the SPP immediately afterwards
  • AMS may not install or run on Windows 2016 or Windows 2019 until Microsoft OS updates are applied through Windows Update - after updating your system, AMS can be reinstalled from the SPP
  • Windows LTSC/SAC media will be detected generically (the edition will not be displayed on the screen).  You may need to choose the correct edition on first boot in some cases.
  • Windows 1803 is no longer supported
