Miscellaneous Items and Notes

• BIOS updates, firmware, etc. should be applied as recommended by the specific hardware manufacturer. The list is too vast to include here.

• As a rule of thumb, there are usually several post Service Pack patches available. When applying baseline updates, we generally recommend applying those patches
that are automatically downloaded either through Microsoft Update manager, Novell’s update channel (For OES), or Linux’s Online Update tool.
