DL160 Gen 9 - Deploying Server 2016 using Intelligent Provisioning


I have an issue with a DL160 Gen 9

There are two identical servers, both with P440 array and slightly different disks (one has 600's the other has 300's).

On both servers, I have done the following

Updated the BIOS and the P440 firmware to the latest versions

Updated Intelligent Provisioning to the latest version (2.50) using bootable ISO.

On one DL160, deployed Server 2016 flawlessly

On the other, it just wont deploy past Windows being unable to create partition (using the same Windows ISO)

The problematic DL160 has been reset pretty much to factory defaults, I've tried various combinations during the IP process, nothing works.  I've even erased the array and recreated.

The IP process does see the P440 and the array I have configured and the IP process gets as far as copying the .wim files.  On next reboot, wpeinit starts up and loads drivers.

Then when you agree to Windows etc, this is what I get.


Any ideas please?  Pulling out what little hair I have left!
