I updated the BIOS to 2.60 and iLo 2.73 without any issues. but i am struggling to install any OSes (proxmox, esxi 7.0, and windows server 2019) on it. esxi and win server has the protection exception error and no go at all on proxmox. Any hints will be greatly appreciated.

BIOS-version 2.66 is also available. Maybe that helps?

Did anyone buy an 858010-001 from eBay and decide not to use it? If so, I'm interested in buying it from you.

I'm also on the hunt for a 858010-001. I'll let you know if I find any; I have a search notifier on Ebay and I'm hunting around other forums. Let me know if you find multiple as well.

For anyone interested, I have a copy of the March 2020 HPE Service Pack disc I can share privately. My EC200A came with the original 2016 v1.00 system ROM. This brings it up the latest v2.66 available via entitlement. I can confirm that both Debian and FreeBSD installed without error via remote .iso attach from the iLO Remote Console.

Anyone been able to somehow mount 2 3.5" hdd when the cages are missing?
While I don't have mine yet. But looking at a drawing of the caddies. They seem simple in design.
I will try and bend some thin metal sheet and recreate it. But my backup idea is to mount it to the top cover. Which might be easier.
