Re: [K12OSN] HP MaxiLife not responding?



John,

It not uncommon for vendors to create "hidden" partitions that host
diagnostic, monitoring, and system restore software/utilities.  So, if
you are doing a new install of ANY distro, and do not cater to these
partitions when initializing your partition table, you'll
unintentionally write over those utilities.

I totally forgot about that while trying to salvage an old dual pII
Compaq Proliant recently: the result was that I have to buy a special CD
from HP/Compaq if I want to utilize the onboard sensors and hardware
RAID. (plus install a Windows OS to use the CD...blah)

I would guess this may be what you are seeing.

From what I can decipher from googling, apparently MaxiLife is some sort of hardware monitoring and diagnostics tool used on the Vectra series. I can't find any reference to this error code or what it means. Has anyone ran across this before? This is the first Vectra I've toyed with.
