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.
To read Ed’s full post, and download those drivers, click here. As usual, before you update any drivers, make sure you are sure you want to do it, and backup anything you need, just in case!
Thanks for the moral support, Andrew. Hope you'll find my upcoming story for Tom's Hardware equally helpful. I love my job: I get to take stuff apart, break it, fix it, tinker endlessly and they pay me anyway!
ed i agree with you
Should i use the xp driver or server 2003?
great information keep it up
Will these drivers be overwritten by the WHS PP3 that's coming in December?
No, because PP3 is a Windows Home Server specific update where as the drives you are referring are specific to the HP hardware.
