Expert Day Question: Why are Gen 9 Proliant drivers not in WinPE images in 10.21

Specifically,  why does the 10.21 version not have the  FlexFabric 650FLB adapter for the  Proliant BL460c Gen 9 drivers in the WinPE image?  Gen 9 has been widely available for over 6 months.

My apologize for that inconvenient,

In order to get this addressed, could you please open a support case? Please refer to the following published article: https://softwaresupport.hp.com/group/softwaresupport/search-result/-/facetsearch/document/KM1405856

Once support has recieved the proper information, support will investigate the issue and verify if a ticket needs to be filed with Current Product Engineering (CPE) to have them create a new image.

My Best Regards,
