HP BL460c G7 Boot-From-SAN Windows Server 2012

Hello
I'm trying to install an operating system on a diskless server Bl 460 G7. On P6350 EVA array I create a discs and present to blade servers. Servers use the built-in converged adapters, in BIOS of EMULEX adapter disks are visible. And when I try to install windows, OS can not see the disk. How to solve this problem?

Hi,

at least for FC HBAs you need a "boot from SAN" driver.

Which CNA is that? The NC533i?

There are some drivers here:

Maybe Windows 2012 don't work so well yet?

Yes, adapter is NC533i.

The driver whitch I has downloaded from the link above but the disc is still not visible.

I also tried installing Win2008r2 and also failed, can not see drives  from EVA.

Disks are visible only when I boot from Smartstart DVD.

 

No one faced a similar problem?
