Update of firmware and driver PERC H700

I hope an easy answer, but I have a firmware and driver update for my PERC H700 and ask yourself which must be installed first? Is it still important?


Hello Blake

You probably won't have issues updated in any order, but recommended when performing updates is to start furthest from the system BIOS and work your way back. This means that you would update the driver first.

Behind put reason in this way is that if you update something like the BIOS OF THE system firstly something that takes over after the system BIOS is incompatible older revision you backflash THE system BIOS in order to enter the other device/OS to be able to update it. If you update in the correct order you should still be able to perform updates obsolete unit to bring it to a compatible revision.

Thank you

  • Support for large hard drive PERC H700

    Nobody knows the biggest SATA drives supported by a PERC H700 in a PowerEdge R710? I read on another post that the H700 will support 3 TB disks. Would like to know whether he would support also 4 TB and disks of 6 TB.

    I can see 4 TB SATA HD as supported but not 6 TB. It may be supported but not yet committed.

  • Update of firmware and drivers controller PowerEdge 2900


    I have server PowerEdge 2900. Current configuration I see on OMSA:

    BIOS version 2.3.1 (former)

    Controller PERC 6 / i integrated.
    Version of the firmware is up to date.
    Firmware Version 6.0.2 - 0002
    Minimum Firmware Version 6.3.0 - 0001 driver version
    6.1.7601.17577 Storport driver version

    I need to upgrade the firmware of the controller and make the Windows updates on this server. My questions:

    What is the correct order for the upgrade:

    1. Windows updates
    2. BIOS,
    3. ESM firware,
    4. Bottom of basket SAS firmware,
    5. Disk controller
    6. Firmware of the controller,
    My questions would be:
    How can I verify ESM and bottom of basket SAS version of the firmware on my server, maybe I do not need to update those?
    On the Dell support site, I could find only:
    Dell Server BIOS, 2.7.0Dell SAS Backplane Firmware, v.1.05, A01Dell BMC Firmware, v.2.50, A00Dell PERC 6/i Integrated, v.6.3.1-0003, A14

    6.1.7601.17577 Storport driver version
    The Dell supports any automatic tool to collect and install the drivers and firmware required on a single server of Windows (except ITA)?
    Server is very critical, thanks,

    Yes, it's safe.  It can be run from within the OS, or you can start on SBUU and serve Suu repository for update packages.

    In most cases, it is easier to update of Windows, but it is not necessary.

    1. Windows updates
    2. BIOS,
    3. Environmentally sound management software (Yes, must be updated to BIOS).
    4. Bottom of basket SAS firmware (also needed),
    5. Controller driver (did you mean driver here? pilot, when it is available, it should be updated before... If current firmware to run 2008R2, new drivers are available through Microsoft Update - if available)
    6. The controller firmware
    7. The hard drive firmware
    8. NIC, DRAC, etc..

    When / if get the support.dell.com site update files, use Packages to update for the format of Microsoft Windows.

  • Compaq CQ58 - 299EV model of updated video card and driver for win7 64 bit and ram upgrade


    Since I was my compaq laptop (about a year), it was windows 7 64 bit operating system inside, even if the manual was for windows 8. So, when I looked up initially for up-to-date drivers I couldn't find support for win8, but I chose not to because I saw tons of compatibility issues with this model of laptop. Well I don't want to update soon, so I would like to know what are the latest drivers I can find for my model for win7 64-bit.

    So, what model of video card has it built in (it just says: "Intel(r) HD Graphics"), so I can find the right drivers for it?
    Also can I put my ram? There are now 2 GB.

    Thanks in advance.

    Since it is a Celeron processor it comes:

    Intel HD Graphics (on models with Intel Pentium or Celeron processor; supports DirectX 10)

    They don't give him a number. The processor is based on the Sandy Bridge architecture, so any driver for the video card HD 3000 series will work.

    Latest version of the Intel driver

    This can take up to 8 GB (2 x 4 GB) DDR3-1333 SO-DIMM, like this:


    Here is the Manual:

  • Dell XPS 15 SSD NVMe slow after updating the firmware July 2016 and papillonné CPU (Core i7)

    Edit: 9/2: title change intended to reflect issues of CPU throttling and discussion (second half of the thread)

    I noticed a huge performance drag after updating the firmware and drivers of my XPS 15 9550. The update took place August 4, 2016.

    Performance of my usual applications (Chrome, development tools and IDE, etc.) is dramatically lower. In general, I would say that things take about 3 times as long to arrive. I checked the CPU (normal), but also memory consumption (as normal) to discover that the problem is with the SSD drive.

    On this laptop: 500 GB NVMe thnsn5512gpu7 NV (toshiba). Attached are the results of a benchmark with AS SSD. All write speeds are appalling, to say the least... that explains a lot, but I have no idea how to solve this problem, and whether or not it really relates to the latest firmware + update drivers provided by Dell.

    (Note: I checked the BIOS, it seems that the SSD is currently configured in RAID mode.) Never touched this option before.)

    Any idea? Other affected users in a similar way. Thanks in advance.

    I managed to get the performance back by going to the properties of the disc and turn off windows write cache flushing heat. The two boxes should be checked. Write speed then went to about 1400 MB/s.

  • How to check firmware and the version of the driver on Dell details

    I need to upgrade the version of the firmware and driver on a Power Edge 2950 server. Please let me know is there all orders for this information. I use the Windows 2008 R2 64-bit version.

    First of all, download and install OpenManage Server Administrator (OMSA):

    Download and run to extract the files, and then run C:\Openmanage\windows\setup.exe, choose custom and make sure that storage management is installed.  Add your servernameoripaddress:1311 to the Intranet Zone of IE.

    You can use OMSA to display the current firmware and driver versions.

    Hello everyone

    I upgraded 2 HP Gen 8 Server on Monday of SPP "2014090.2014_0827.10" firmware and HP ESXi drivers 5.1 U2 September 2014.

    firmware 10.2.340.19


    After two hours lost both connections to the server. In Configuration/network adapters all missing devices and after awhile they returned to display.

    Network cards have been disabled in the Configuration/network.

    After reboot, all the network were OK but the problem again.

    The only solution I found was a rear roller for the firmware and driver net b2net.

    Does anyone have the same problem?

    Yes, I saw two other reports of similar problems.  I happen to run ESXi 5.0 U3, but I was careful to use the latest HP recipe/package of Sept/Oct because of this problem. Check out the blog on this subject at the following site - ICT - Freak.nl

  • HP P1102 turns off after 4 hours since the last update of firmware - stop it turn off?

    I have updated the firmware and my printer drivers for the last realease (17/10/2012) on my P1102 printer. The printer now turns off completely after 4 hours. I changed the setting in the driver to "never turn off" but it makes no difference. It's a big problem that I use the PC connected to the printer via remote access and so I can print is no longer when I want to. How I either restore the firmware or stop the printer turn off please? Since the firmware update, I noticed also that when the printer goes to sleep the green light will blink each opten both before the firware update lights exploded when the printer has gone to bed. Can someone help please...

  • DELL PowerEdge R710 and PERC H700 RAID driver for WIn 2008 Std

    Hi all

    I have a DELL PowerEdge R710 with a controller RAID PERC H700.

    I try to install Windows 2008 Std 64 bit, but I can't find the driver. Even for the site web at support.dell.com. Can someone help me.

    THX in advance

    Even if you use a driver of 2008, it should at least recognize it, then you must be using the wrong driver or something wrong :)

    If you are installing 2008 R2, make sure that you use this file:

    If you install 2008 x 64, make sure that you use this file:

    With one, you must first unlock the .exe (right click on the .exe, properties, unlock), unzip / extract the files (run it and make a note of the default location), and then copy the 4 files on a CD, USB, etc., then when Windows tells you that he is not all hard disks, click on the link drivers load below to load the drivers from the media you have chosen.

  • PERC H700 RAID 5, 3 disks, 1 Reporting failed and 1 predictive failure


    I have a PowerEdge T410 with a PERC H700, RAID 5 with 3 disks.  The controller reported a failed drive so I replaced the week last with a drive of new/refurbished.  Now only 1 week later it reported another drive has failed and the drive replaced as predictive failure.  Looks suspicious, i.e. I am doubting the controller card.

    I think updating the firmware of the controller first, but not sure if I should replace the faulty drive first, i.e. If updating the firmware could cause table failure.

    Also, if I install OpenManage on a virtual machine (host is ESXi 4.1), OM sees the controller?

    Thank you!

  • Drives 3 TB for DELL PoweEdge R510 with PERC H700 Controller

    Good afternoon.

    Currently, we have 8 x discs 1Tera in our PorwerEdge R510.

    -1 RAID 5 for the other 6 disks

    We strive to upgrade our RAID 5 with new disks of 6 x 3 TB.

    The problem is OpenManage pointed out that the discs that we inserted the 2 TB, and the State is "unsupported".

    Do you know why this phenomenon occurs? Do we need to do a Firmware Update for the PERC controller? If so, this will delete RAID 1, OS disks?

    Thank you in advance for your help!

    See you soon.

    If you change to UEFI, you will need to reinstall the operating system. UEFI completely changes the way the operating system reads the system hardware, so there is not a way to avoid a reinstallation.

    The firmware update will not affect the RAID array.
