Hi - is anyone familiar with the HP Proliant ML370?

I have a storage area connected by USB, and it works well, but the only obvious problem is that I cannot re-boot the server remotely - when it comes back up it attempts to boot to the USB device.

I cannot find anywhere to disable this boot option in the system BIOS - has anyone had a similar problem with theis particular HP and if so, please assist!

This is a common problem which is resolved in later PSP and firmware versions.

Please upgrade to latest Proliant Support Pack ;

HI SiborgRaider & Coast-IT.

Is updating the BIOS a different process than upgrading the support pack/formware?

If so, is it worth upgrading both?
