Server 1709 (Server 2016 Fast Track) on BL460c Gen9

Has anyone been able to install Server 1709 on HPE Blade hardware? 

If running directly from the the DVD (No intelligent Provisioning), the installation process hangs when loading the splash screen.

If intelligent provisioning is used the bits are transferred to the disk but the first boot of the OS after the initial boot files causes the OS to hang at the splash screen with the circling dots.

The ISO image was downloded from Microsoft Volume Licensing Web site

Below is the image's title.

I'm also unable to setup 1709. Tried 3 different Gen9 models, including BL460c. Setup hangs after "Loading files" screen. No BSD and no error, just silent ... nothing.

I am having the same issue on dl360 gen9 servers exactly the same thing happens . I have opened the case still awaiting response . I think they haven't tested this version yet on gen9 servers

Faton have you heard back from HPE on your issues yet? I've tried every possible change in the UEFI and legacy BIOS but I'm getting the same thing like everyone else?

I have installed on several Gen8 BL460c blades.  Both Hyper-V and full OS with GUI.

I know your problem in on Gen9, but thought you might like to know.

Thanks to everyone who offered their input.

We have several Hyper-V clusters running Server 2016.   We were hoping to start using Server 1709 for our upcomming Hyper-V clusters.  It looks like we will have to wait a bit longer to put into production.
