Installing Windows Server 2012 R2 in iSCSI target and booting the blade from iSCSI target

I got ProLiant BL460c G6 and need to install Windows Server 2012 R2 in iSCSI target.

 

I pressed Ctrl+S during the boot and configured the NIC to link the iSCSI target. But during the Windows installation that is not detecting the disk and It still shows as  "We could not find any drives. TO get storage driver, click load driver."

 

Is there any documentation from HP or step by step guide to setup HP NIC as iSCSI target to install the Windows SERVER?

You may need to download the NIC driver to use iSCSI mode, it may not be included on the 2012 R2 media.

 

Get the driver for your NIC

Thanks Jimmy,

 

No luck, I could not find the driver from HP web. my balde got Embeded Flex-10 but I downloaded HP Emulex driver and tried, have a look of attached pdf and give more idea.

I think the embedded NICs on that server are Broadcom, try the HP Broadcom 10GbE Multifunction Drivers for Windows Server x64 Editions

Thanks Jimmy. 

 

I think this time driver is working because it has picked the driver automatically as I haven't unticked the - "HIde drivers that...." [snapshot attached].

I selected both model of drivers but still not showing the disk that confiugrated in the NIC as iSCSI target .

 

I am not sure why it is not showing eventhough I configered the iSCSI target properly. Any other suggestion or troubleshooting steps I can try?
