make buildworld & HP ProLiant BL460c G7

Upgrade from 11.1-RELEASE to 11.1-RELEASE-p3

Brand: HP ProLiant BL460c G7

I wasn’t able to make it boot from the iLO virtual CD/USB interface no matter what I tried, hence locally attached USB CD-ROM was the only way to install the OS.

Secondly, no network adapters will be recognized after the installation is completed. Therefore, make sure you include src from the system components window, so you can rebuild the kernel with the following stanza added (GENERIC doesn’t include it):
