HP DL380GEN9 unable to install windows when bios is in UEFI mode

I have 3 DL380Gen9 server already patched with April HP Service Pack and the bios in uefi mode. Tried to install window 2008 r2 with intelligent provisioning or manual os install.

 

Both state the disk is 0mb. But if I changed the bios mode to legacy, it able to show the disk size and window able to install.

 

I test to install with window 2012 r2 o uefi bios but same problem. Then i disable the uefi optimized boot and tried to install window 2008 r2 and 2012 r2.

 

Same result.

 

Anyone having same issue?

Hi,

 

The HP UEFI System Utilities and Shell Release Notes for HP ProLiant Gen9 Servers > UEFI Boot Mode requirements states that for using Microsoft Windows 2008 R2 UEFI Optimized Boot must be disabled.

 

Hope this helps!

Hi,

 

I've tried that before posting this issue on this forum.
