I have been pointed to this forum as a source of information on BIOS updates for an HP Microserver Gen 8.
HP seem to expect you to have some kind of service contract.
However I'm told that you can get updates if you know the correct link.

Apologies if this is the wrong forum.

i think this is the latest bios version


and this
This says "Entitlement Required".
I assumed that this meant that you had to pay.

Well, it downloaded. :)

Appears to be for Windows only, though.

So the ones I have found seem to be useable after all.

Normally they require some sort of contract or warranty, but due to the recent number of critical intel bugs, they have released the BIOS updates for anyone.. for now.

I still think the HP Microserver Gen8 is a great beginner's server, provided that the admin can pass the rite of passage that is the HP website.

I briefly owned a Media Smart Server and that thing was pretty fun to screw around with. Managed to kill it somehow after I connected a fan the wrong way, F.
