Installing this upgrade results in the original operating system logical
disk being completely overwritten and replaced with a clean installation
of the Microsoft Windows Storage Server 2008 R2 operating system.
All data on this disk will be erased. Before beginning the upgrade
process, be sure to back up any data that you would like to restore after
the upgrade is complete.
The upgrade process does not overwrite any data that resides on non-OS
data volumes; however, HP strongly recommends that you also back up
data on these disks in the unlikely event of an unintended data loss.

IMPORTANT:
Data volumes will be available after the restore process;
however, you will need to restore their drive letters. For more
information, see “Restoring data volume drive
letters” on page 4.
After the upgrade process is complete, the Upgrade DVD should also
be used as the System Recovery disk. Subsequent uses of the Upgrade
DVD will restore the storage system to its default Enterprise OS volume
settings.

IMPORTANT:
Upgrading your storage system to
Windows Storage Server 2008 R2
Enterprise Edition
The System Recovery Disk that was originally provided with
your HP StorageWorks X1000 G2 Storage System installs the
original operating system (Microsoft Windows Storage Server
2008 R2 Standard Edition). After completing this upgrade, be
sure to use the Upgrade DVD to perform system recoveries on
the upgraded system.
Following the upgrade process, a 100 MB boot partition exists. This
volume contains boot information and supports BitLocker drive encryption.
This is a DO NOT DELETE drive and is hidden from view in the operating
system.
The upgrade can be completed by using either the direct connect access
method or the remote management access method. As an alternative to
using the provided upgrade DVD, you can create and use a USB flash
drive to upgrade your storage system. For instructions on creating a USB
flash drive, see “Create a System Recovery USB Flash Drive” on page 3.
IMPORTANT:
If your C:\ volume has been renamed with a non-compliant
label (that is, any label other than System or OS), the system
upgrade will fail. Before running the System Upgrade DVD,
ensure that the C:\ volume is properly labeled; if it is not,
rename the volume to either System or OS.
Recording current system settings
Before performing the upgrade, HP recommends that you locate and
record information about your system. The following table describes how
to find some basic settings for your system. You may also want to save
additional system information.

1.
Do one of the following:
a.
To use the direct connect access method, connect a keyboard,
monitor, mouse, and DVD drive (if needed) directly to the
storage system using a local I/O cable.
b.
To use the remote management access method, access the
server using Integrated Lights-Out from a client PC.
NOTE:
For more information about using virtual media, see
the iLO documentation.
2.
3.
Do one of the following:
a.
For direct connect, insert the Upgrade DVD into the DVD drive
or insert the USB Flash Drive into a USB port.
b.
For remote management, insert the Upgrade DVD into the DVD
drive on the client PC or insert the USB Flash Drive into a USB
port on the client PC.
Click Restore Factory Image.
The upgrade process completes with little user intervention required.
The server automatically reboots more than once.
IMPORTANT:
Do not interrupt the upgrade process.
When the upgrade process nears completion, the Windows Storage
Server 2008 R2 Enterprise desktop displays the Set Up Windows
wizard.
4.
On the first page of the wizard, select a language from the list and
then click Next.
5.
On the next page of the wizard, select the country or region, time
and currency, and keyboard layout settings, and then click Next.
At a command prompt, run sisadmin /v
Page 2
6.
On the next page of the wizard, enter the Windows product key,
which is located on the Certificate of Authenticity label provided
with the upgrade DVD, and then click Next.
NOTE:
By default, Windows will attempt to activate your copy
of the operating system three days after initially logging
in to the system. To disable this setting and instead
activate Windows manually, clear the Automatically
activate Windows when I'm online check box. For
more information about manual activation, see
“Activate Windows manually” on page 3.
5.
At the diskpart prompt, enter list disk.
6.
Identify the disk number that corresponds to the flash drive. This is
typically the last disk listed.
7.
Enter select disk <USB drive number>. For example,
select disk 4.
8.
Enter clean.
9.
Enter create partition primary.
10. Enter select partition 1.
11. Enter format fs=fat32 quick.
NOTE:
7.
On the next page of the wizard, review the license terms, check
the I accept the license terms check box, and then click Start.
If your USB flash drive does not support the FAT32 file
system, format the drive as NTFS instead. Omitting the
quick parameter lengthens the format time
considerably.
The Windows Storage Server 2008 R2 Enterprise desktop displays
the following message: The user's password must be changed before
logging on the first time. Log on to the storage system by establishing
an Administrator password:
1.
Click OK.
12. Enter active to mark the partition as active.
2.
Type an Administrator password in the New password box.
3.
Re-type the Administrator password in the Confirm password
box.
13. Enter assign letter=<drive letter> to assign a drive letter
to the USB drive. For example, assign letter=U.
4.
Click the blue arrow next to the Confirm password box.
5.
Click OK.
14. Insert the System Recovery DVD provided with the system.
15. Using Windows Explorer or a comparable utility, open the DVD so
that all contents are visible.
16. Select all of the files (including bootmgr).
After the Administrator password has been set, the storage system
completes the upgrade process.
8.
17. Copy all files to the root of the USB drive.
Remove the DVD, USB flash drive, iLO virtual DVD, or iLO virtual
USB flash drive.
Activating Windows manually
If you did not select the automatic Windows activation option during
the upgrade process, you must manually activate your copy of Microsoft
Windows Storage Server 2008 R2 Enterprise Edition within 30 days of
initially logging into the system.
IMPORTANT:
After the upgrade process is complete, you must physically affix
the included Certificate of Authenticity (COA) for the upgraded
Windows Storage Server 2008 R2 operating system to the
storage system. Failing to do so is a violation of the Microsoft
Windows Storage Server 2008 R2 licensing terms and
conditions.
1.
If needed, change your locale settings (Control Panel > Regional
and Language Options).
NOTE:
If you did not enter your Product Key located on the
Certificate of Authenticity during the quick-restore
process, you will need to enter that key during the next
steps.
Creating a System Recovery USB flash
drive
This procedure is supported on Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows
Storage Server 2008, and Windows Storage Server 2008 R2 operating
systems only.
If you create a backup copy of the upgrade DVD using a USB flash
drive, it can also be used to restore the system. To create system recovery
media using a USB flash drive, complete the following steps:
1.
Obtain a blank 8GB or larger USB flash drive.
2.
Insert the USB flash drive into your workstation or laptop.
3.
Open an elevated command prompt with Administrator privileges.
4.
At the command prompt, enter diskpart.
2.
In Control Panel, double-click System.
3.
Under Windows Activation, click Activate Windows Now.
4.
Follow the on-screen instructions.
If you have an external Internet connection, Microsoft Windows Storage
Server 2008 R2 Enterprise Edition can be activated online. If there is a
problem with Windows Activation, the on-screen instructions will instruct
you to call Microsoft. Be sure to have the product key available when
calling this number.

Restoring data volume drive letters
When you use the Standard to Enterprise Upgrade DVD to restore a
system that has existing data volumes (non-operating system volumes),
drive letters are not assigned to the data volumes. This is by design. The
volume labels are retained and can be used to identify the data volumes.
To assign drive letters to volumes, use either diskpart.exe or Disk
Management. To open Disk Management, click Start > Run..., enter
diskmgmt.msc, and then click OK. Right-click the disk and partition to
be assigned a drive letter and select Change Driver Letter and Paths.
Follow the on-screen instructions to add a drive letter to the volume.
