DL385G7 Hyper-v R2 Cluster issue

I'm setting up a Hyper-v R" cluster with 3 DL385G7 .
Each server has 16 NIC .
4 of them are used for ISCSI
when I run the cluster validation tool it only has a warning for the ISCSI NIC being on the same subnet , all other tests were fine .
HP NCU version is 10.10
Broadcom drivers and firmware are the latest from the web

When I try to create the cluster it fail with the following error .

Validating installation of the Network FT Driver on node hv03.xxx.net.
Unable to successfully cleanup.
To troubleshoot cluster creation problems, run the Validate a Configuration wizard on the servers you want to cluster.
An error occurred while creating the cluster.
An error occurred creating cluster 'hvcl01'.
The service has not been started

can anyone help on this

HP NCU should be unistalled. Hyper-V best practices requires it not to be install.

try it that way

NCU can safely be installed , there's a WP which states that .

I've made many hyper-v cluster , by now , with NCU.

I've found a solution applying a MS FIX http://support.microsoft.com/kb/978309/
and reinstalling failover cluster with

dism /Online /Disable-Feature /FeatureName:FailoverCluster-Core
reboot
dism /Online /Enable-Feature /FeatureName:FailoverCluster-Core
