Overview of PSPs for Microsoft Windows

This chapter discusses deploying PSPs in Microsoft® Windows® 2003 (version 7.90 or later) and Microsoft® Windows® 2003 x64 Editions (version 7.90 or later), and Microsoft® Windows® 2008 (version 8.00 or later) and Microsoft® Windows Server™ 2008 x64 Editions (version 8.00 or later). For more information about deploying PSPs on Microsoft® Windows® 2000 (version 7.60 or earlier), Microsoft® Windows® 2003 (version 7.80 or earlier), and Microsoft® Windows® 2003 x64 Editions (version 7.80 or earlier), see the Appendix—Deploying PSPs in Microsoft Windows 7.80 or earlier.

HP provides the HP Smart Update Manager for configuring components and deploying PSPs on Microsoft® Windows®. You can obtain these PSPs from the PSP website or the SmartStart CD 7.90 or later.

NOTE: Smart Components can also be installed individually. For more information, refer to "Installing single components."

NOTE: The PSP contains numerous files. All files must be present in the same directory as the HPSUM.EXE program for the PSP to be properly installed.

Beginning with the ProLiant Support Pack for Microsoft® Windows® version 7.90 or later, users can now deploy firmware and software components simultaneously. For more information about this new feature, see "Deploying firmware and software simultaneously."
