Are you sure it hangs? In my experience this step can take a while (~10 minutes).

You could also try to unplug the internal disks, or check if the SAS backplane is plugged in correctly.

Re: Bl870c i2 is not getting in to UEFi shell

If you have any mezzanine cards installed remove them and try again. I had the same problem when trying to install an HBA mezzanine card that had an unsupported firmware version.

I had to install the card in an older blade (since you can't FW upgrade the card in the i2 blade due to not being able to boot to UEFI...), upgrade the firmware and then move it back to the i2 blade. After this everything worked.
