I have a HP BL480c with a P400i controller that is "new to me", and when booting I get a "1783-Slot 0 Array controller is in a lock-up state due to a hardware configuration failure. (Controller is disabled until this problem is resolved)."
I have tried removing the controller and booting (obviously no error), then reinstalling it and booting with the same resulting error. There is no battery on the controller. I tried the SmartStart 8.60 x64 CD but it tells me there are no controllers (i assume because it's disabled). I have been trying to use the SmartUpdate 9.20(b) DVD to update the controller firmware, but when i do an interactive session it only shows options for a linux box. However, if i explore the DVD on another BL480c i can go to \HPFWUP920B\HP\SWpackages and run cp013970.exe (which is the Online ROM flash for the P400i) and it tells me it's installed and up to date on that machine, which i booted from the DVD to update before initial OS install. I have a couple other "new to me" BL480c's and have tried swapping the controllers and continue to get the same error.
Any help is very appreciated!
