And I have recently acquired an HP Z420 workstation... First, the news about Intel AMT, then this one about the HP BIOS updates... On the other hand, E5-2660 v1 in this machine is awesome (I'm comparing to AMD FX-6300 machine, so bear with me here :D )
As far as I know needing a warranty or service contract to download is only for servers.
BIOS and drivers appear to be available for the Z420:

This place is awesome, well one of you is especially awesome.
I think we can put a hold on the request for BIOS help as someone has helped me out.
I will post back shortly once the deed is done
EDIT: Bios has been successfully updated
But do please feel free to join my rant fest!

Hi, I ran into the same issue here and hoping if you could help me. bough a couple old proliant DL380 G7 off Craigslist to setup a home lab but I can't load 2008R2/2012R2 or Vmware ESXi 6 without updating the BIOS/firmware. Do you have the SPP ISO that you can share?
