Blank screen when trying to install Windows 2012 R2 to DL380 G8

Hi, I't trying to install windows 2012 R2 int o DL380 G8, when I boot from iso, initial windows logo appears with loading animation and after some time it just goes into blank screen (I think just before letting you to choose partitions to install to etc.). At first I thought that it might be ILO issue, however it is the same when viewing from localy pluged in display.

 

This is a reinstall, currently there is 2012 non R2 installed.

 Additional notes: I've tried launching setup for 2016 TP5 as well as for 2012 non R2, both setups are ok and I am able to get to the disk selection screen, only 2012 R2 is going into this blank screen. I've also tried 2 different iso for R2 just to check that is not a media problem.

OK, so I was able to get past this blank screen by unmaping SAN storage before starting windows setup.
