DL360 Gen9 ESXi

Hi all,

I have a HP DL360 Gen9 that I am trying to install ESXi on. Previously this server was running Windows.

I've tried both the standard version of ESXi and the HPE specific version, whenever I mount the ISO via iLO and attempt to boot from it, all seems fine at first, but after a few minutes of the ESXI installation screen I get a screenful of changing red error messages. They reference LOTS of things and it seems to change often, but some of the messages are "X64 Exception Type 08 - Invalid Opcode Exception", "CALL ImageBase ImageName+Offset" but as I say the messages are lengthy and change.

I did Google the error but the only thing I found was to try to disable the SD Card in the BIOS, I've done that but it made no difference. I've also installed the latest SPP on the server, and I've also tried deleting the storage arrays and re-creating them, but no difference. 

I'm really not sure whats wrong so any help would be great!

Thanks
Martin

Hello,

 

This issue could be caused by old firmware of BIOS/iLO or Smart Array Controller.
I would suggest you update the server with the latest bios and all firmware.

Or try enabling/disabling UEFI optimized boot in BIOS configuration under Boot Options.

Re: DL360 Gen9 ESXi

Hi

It turned out to be a bit of a weird one! I had accessed iLO via Chrome and the HTML5 console option. No matter what I did, I would get the errors I mentioned below.

I switched over to using Internet Explorer with the more classic iLO console and it worked fine! I can only assume there is something slightly buggy about the HTML5 console, with it being new(ish).

Thanks
