Is there any IBM ToolsCenter Bootable Media Creator equivlent for HP Proliant server? With IBM TC BMC I can choose which server i'm using, and it will create a bootable cd for these servers, containing the newest firmware (BIOS, RAID card, SAS disk firmware, etc) update, then I boot server with this cd, and the firmware is updated automatically.

You'll want to look at the HP Service Pack for ProLiant (SPP).

This combines the firmware and system updates into a bootable DVD. The server's components are automatically detected. This package also allows you to install the operating system-specific tools and agents.

HP Smart Update Firmware DVD does the job. It is able to load additional files from the USB stick.
