DL380P Gen8 will not boot to anything but C: drive.

I have 2 DL380P Gen8 servers that need to be re-installed.  When I try to boot into Intelligent Provisioning it just skips it and boots to the C: drive with no error message.  It also will not boot to USB or virtual CD/DVD.

Here is what I have tried already;

Any help would be much appreciated.  

Just know that I do not have physical access to these servers and can only, for the time being, access them remotely.

I would love to but I do not have an HPE warranty any more on this server.

Any other ideas?

I know you've stated you reset RBSU to factory defaults,. If you've only done this through RBSU, pull the cover and use SW6 of the maintenance switch to reset

I am also having this issue.  I have an error message in the ILO Diagnostics page stating "Controller firmware revision 2.10.00 Embedded media initialization failed due to media write-verify test failure".  I have tried using the Intelligence Recovery media and to no avail.  I just get Failed to write to NVRAM. I am unable to download any SPP software as I am out of warranty. This server is essentially a brick to me at the moment, which is sad because for an enterprise-grade piece of equipment this thing sure does prove to be rather unreliable.
