Unknown usb drive on HP Gen8

Recommended Posts

Could you please help me to find out what the hell this device is, see picture?

I am on microserver gen8, booting from the sd card, VID and PID are correctly set, it is not a bootable sd card. I do not have any other devices plugged into usb connectors, either inside or outside of the case. Please help me to identify.

just google "hp.vid" and you will find things (like i did)

System Options -> USB Options -> Virtual Install Disk -> Disable

 

or

 

F9 during POST to access RBSU and navigate to

Advanced Options>Advanced System ROM Options>Virtual install Disk
