HP ML 110 G3 Server w/Windows Server 2008 R2, embedded SATA RAID, and CPU upgrade
Posted on 2011-03-21
I inherited an HP ML 110 G3 server with a 32 bit 3.0 GHZ Pentium 4, 800 MHz FSB processor.
There are 3 related questions:
1. I can get an Intel Pentium E5800 3.2 GHz, 800 MHz FSB dual core CPU (w/LGA775 socket).
Can I use this CPU? Normally the server can take a Pentium D, 3.2 GHz CPU. Do I need a BIOS upgrade? Where can I get that upgrade.
2. I am also planning to install Windows Server 2008 R2 (64 bit). Where can I get drivers for
this HP server (particularly the onboard SATA RAID)?
3. Finally, I've read that the onboard SATA RAID is limited to 250 GH drives. Is that true? Is that 250 GB
partitions or physical drives? I'd like to use a paid of 1 GB SATA drives in a RAID 1.
