Installing Critical Device Drivers and Supplemental Software

An installation wizard is provided on the Tools and Drivers firmware DVD to install server-specific device drivers and Supplemental Software. The server-specific device drivers are provided to support optional hardware devices that can be installed on your server.

Install Server-Specific Device Drivers

  1. Insert the Tools and Drivers firmware DVD into a local or remote USB DVD drive and do one of the following:
    • If the DVD automatically starts, click Install Drivers and Supplement Software.
    • If the DVD does not automatically start, navigate to one of the following folders containing the appropriate InstallPack file (for example, InstallPack_1_0_1.exe), and double-click it.
      • <DVD>/Windows/W2K8/Packages
      • <DVD>/Windows/W2K8R2/Packages

      The Server Installation Package dialog appears.

  2. In the Install Pack dialog, click Next to accept the default installable items.

    Note - You should always accept the “default installable items” to ensure that the most recent versions of the drivers are installed.

    The Install Pack notice dialog appears.

  3. In the Install Pack notice dialog, read the message, then click Next.

    The Welcome to the Sun Fire Installation Wizard appears.

  4. In the Welcome to the Sun Fire Installation Wizard dialog, click Next.

    The End User License Agreement page appears.

  5. In the End User License Agreement page, select I Accept This Agreement, then click Next.

    The platform-specific drivers are installed. A green check mark verifies that each driver was installed successfully.

  6. In the Driver Installation Pack dialog, click Finish.

    The System Settings Change dialog appears.

    Note - If you plan on installing Supplemental Software (highly recommended), do not restart your system at this time. Once the Supplemental Software has been installed, you will be prompted to restart the system.

  7. Perform one of the following:
    • If you accepted the default installable settings in Step 2, click No to proceed to Installing Supplemental Software.
    • If you are not installing the Supplemental Software, click Yes to restart your computer.
