HP ProLiant servers and blades are a mainstay in the data center. The market leader for some years with good reason, ProLiant technology represents a remarkably stable continuum of server hardware management tools. HP SmartStart CDs and DVDs have been used countless times since Compaq ProLiant days to accelerate and standardize server deployments by integrating the right HP drivers and utilities into the OS installation process.

No SmartStart for HP Gen8 ProLiant, Windows Server 2012
This is the Software Easy Set-up and Documentation CD for the HP ProLiant ML150 G6 server. This CD contains the latest video, storage, chipset, and networking drivers and user documentation. HP Proliant ML150 reinstall I tried Booting from the SBS server 2003 CD to install and that did not work. Now the server just reboots once it reaches the Windows Logo page. Here are all of your software and driver options for Windows (assuming 2008 R2) on the HP ProLiant DL120 G6. The server does not use a traditional SmartStart CD, but rather a model-specific ' Easy Setup CD '. The HP ProLiant ML150 Server is an exceptional value that helps you meet the requirements of your small to medium-sized growing business. With its powerful Intel® Xeon® processors, this model keeps up with the computing demands of your busy staff.

A hardware migration to the Gen8 ProLiant platform prompted HP to end the SmartStart legacy with version 8.70b (12/2011) being the last media version. HP stated that SmartStart will not be updated beyond version 8.70. SmartStart will still be available on the web for supported ProLiant G7 and earlier servers through their supported end of life. Since Windows Server 2012 was not an operating system choice in SmartStart 8.70, it won't be possible to use SmartStart to install Windows Server 2012.

New Gen8 and later ProLiant servers use a different technique for assisted installation. There is no media kit included with ProLiant Gen8 products. Intelligent Provisioning replaces SmartStart CDs for ProLiant Gen8 servers. The software that came on SmartStart media is now embedded on a flash chip on ProLiant Gen8 servers and Gen8 server blades. The pre-loaded flash chip is bootable when a user presses the F10 key during server boot (POST). The server will then boot to the pre-loaded flash chip and show the Intelligent Provisioning software.
New way to provision HP ProLiant: Smart Update Manager (HP-SUM)
For everyone that does not have ProLiant Gen8 servers, use the Service Pack for ProLiant (SPP) at http://www.hp.com/go/spp to get firmware and software updates, since only Gen8 can use Intelligent Provisioning. You will also need to use the SPP if you are installing Windows Server 2012 on any HP hardware prior to Gen8. There is also a Windows Server 2012 Supplement for Service Pack for ProLiant that includes drivers and software for all ProLiant servers.
A common scenario is that you will install Windows Server 2012 on a pre-Gen8 ProLiant manually, that is, without HP software-assisted installation. Then afterwards you will run the SPP and/or Windows Server 2012 Supplement to install the HP hardware integration features. HP published a 13-page Technical white paper in September 2012 on Windows Server 2012 implementation recommendations, which makes clear that HP supports Windows Server 2012 installation on G7 and Gen8 ProLiant hardware, and also advises which drivers to use and where they are located (SPP or Supplement). Not all ProLiant hardware previous to G7 and Gen8 may be supported by HP drivers and software on Windows Server 2012.
