Redhat RHEL 8.4 iLO installation very slow

It is a known issue that attempting to install Redhat RHEL 8.4 by mounting the iso using iLO virtual media is very slow. The virtual mouse pointer is delayed by about 30 seconds from the physical mouse pointer movement and it is incredibly frustrating.

This support link mentions the iLO5 but I have also experienced this on a BL460c Gen8 with iLO4.

Fortunately in my case the installation completed succesfully. I have also tried adding the kernel option

pci=nomsi

during a dummy install and this at least resolved the mouse lag but I did not take the re-installation any further.

Is it possible to get the above link updated to include iLO4?

Hopefully others find this information useful.
