Are you using Windows for IA64/Itanium or Windows for x86 to install from?

 

If you are just using the x86 DVD then it won't work.  You need Windows specifically for the Itanium/IA64 platform.

Hi,

 

If you are using IA DVD for installing Windows, Please follow the steps:

 

  1. When prompted, insert the Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 operating system CD and press Enter.
  2. Press any key when prompted to boot from the CD or DVD (be ready to do this quickly, or the system could time out).

NOTE:Ensure that your DVD drive is connected before running EBSU,To connect a DVD drive ensure that thwe MS windows 2008 DVD is in the drive and then run the "reconnect -r" from EFI Shell.

 

For More information , Please search this document (c02766245 - Windows Server 2008 R2 on HP Integrity Servers (Installation Guide)) in HP Support Center Search.

 

HTH,

Surendar
