We have a brand new HP BL460c G7 Blade. We want to install Citrix Xenserver on it. The installer prompts for Networkdrivers since it can´t locate any supported hardware. According to HPs QuickSpecs the Server uses NC553m 10Gb FlexNet adapter. I can not find any drivers at HP´s nor Citrix´s Website.

Anyone had any luck with this (or a similar) setup?

The NC553m is a re-branded Emulex driver.

You can find the appropriate driver from the Citrix website here.

putting just a link as an answer isn't very helpful, especially if that link goes dead int he future, can you please add to your answer with a summary of the information in the link - in your own words. – Zypher Feb 21 '11 at 19:55
Worked! Useing Citrix Xenserver 5.6 FP1 also did the trick. It has the driver included... – lepole Feb 22 '11 at 12:14
