For those of you who have the first version of the HP MediaSmart Server, either the EX470 or the EX475, you may want to update the drivers for the hardware. Now HP don’t actually provide any updated hardware drivers specifically for the HP MediaSmart, but a lot of people want to run either the latest, or are the very least, later drivers than the ones that came with it.

Ed Tittel on his Viz Vista blog has spent some time locating and testing out different updated drivers for the various components of the HP MediaSmart, including the graphics card and network card.

Ed even includes a useful table with download links to the version of the drivers that worked.
