Could Intelligent Provisioning 3 be any worse?

Trying to install Windows 2016.  I cannot assign a volume size to the boot partition - it uses the entire drive.  I cannot assign an IP address to Windows before it boots - it automatically uses DHCP.  I cannot select a USB drive for the installation - must be a share.  Windows only allows me to shrink the volume a small fraction, so I am stuck with a huge system volume.  Our web blocker prevents the server from contacting HP for updates using a DHCP address, so the whole HP install fails.  On top of all of that, the user experence / interface is confusing and down right ugly!  What happend to HP?  Such trash!

Hi JT980,

You have not provided the details of the server model. Never the less, please check and update the following;

1) Ip should be the latest

2) Latest Bios

3) Server updated with the latest SPP.

You can create multiple logical driver under same array and later you can use the logical drive to install Windows 2016 and this will help you to assign a volume size to the boot partition and it will not use the entire drive for OS installation.

 

With reference to selection of USB drive for the installation, please refer Intelligent Provisioning User Guide for HPE ProLiant Gen10 Servers (page number 21)
