ML110Gen9 + ESXi 5.5u3 Unable to install


ML110Gen9 + ESXi 5.5u3 Unable to install

Im having some trouble installing the HP Customized ESXi on my server, It starts loading ESXI installer then reboots.. i feel like i have tried everything! :(


Hardware: ML110 Gen 9 Server Xeon E5 2620 v3, HP MicroSD EM Kit (726116-B21).

Im using the latest ESXi 5.5 U3 Customized iso from HP based off the Recipe @ 

Recipe says ithe 300i should be on firmare 1.64 but its actually on 2.08 after booting the SPP Insights module.

I have already installed SPP 2016.04.0 , upgrading to P99V2.0 / iLO 2.4 from v1.5 / 2.3 respectivley.

The Server came with B140i SmartArray Controller & 300i Dual Network ( I think its Broadcom 5717 Chipset )

I also have two HP 1tb Sata Drives installed in Raid 1.

HP Intelligent Provisioning doesnt support the HP 8gb MicroSD Enterprise Mainstream card so i can't use that.


Any insight or assistance into this issue would be greatly appreciated.
