  3. Select Recommended Mode and the OS version to be installed, and click Next.

    NOTE:

    The selected OS version must be the same as that in the installation DVD or ISO image file.

    If the versions are inconsistent, check whether the Smart Provisioning version supports the installation of the current OS. If not, upgrade Smart Provisioning to the version that supports the OS. For details about the OSs that can be installed using Smart Provisioning, see Overview.

    • Smart Provisioning of V110 or later checks the firmware version compatibility. If the firmware version is matched, the page shown in Figure 9-107 is displayed. If the firmware version is not matched, the dialog box shown in Figure 9-106 is displayed.
      Figure 9-106 Dialog box
      • If the current firmware version is earlier than the target version, you are advised to upgrade the firmware to the target version.
      • If the current firmware version is later than the target version, perform the following steps:
        1. Upgrade Smart Provisioning to the latest version by referring to Upgrading Smart Provisioning. If the problem persists after the upgrade, go to 3.b.
        2. Find the driver mapping table corresponding to the driver package of the latest version of the OS to be installed at Support-E, as shown in Figure 9-107. Find the tab of the current OS in the driver mapping table, and find the firmware displayed in Figure 9-106 in the Chip column. The firmware version displayed in the FW Version column is the firmware version that matches the driver of the latest version of the current OS.
          • If the firmware version displayed in the FW Version column is earlier than the current firmware version, downgrade the firmware to the target version shown in Figure 9-106.
          • If the firmware version displayed in the FW Version column is later than or equal to the current firmware version, you are advised to upgrade the driver to the latest version after installing the OS.
