Intelligent Provisioning Windows issue

I've got a brand new DL380 Gen 10 and have patched it with the latest support pack prior to building. The intelligent provisioning I am using with an ISO from ILO. The Windows install gets to a certain point and a batch process ends.


If I type exit or close the command prompt the server restarts.

This is a problem I've noted a lot with Intelligent Provisioning and it's a shame because the storage controller driver is not on the Windows ISO so installing Windows remotely is extra fiddly.

Anyone know what's wrong?

Hi Tim Gowen,


Good day!


We understand your concern.


We would request you to try the below : 


1) Update the Intelligent Provisioning to the latest :

2) Then try to install the Operating System.


3) Try to install the OS using Manual Method using iLO Virtual Media.

>> Copy the ISO - Installation file to a shared folder for which the Server has access.

>> Select the Virtual Media - and select the ISO file

>> Restart the Server and use One Time Boot Menu 

>> Boot the Server using the ISO File and proceed to installation.

>> If you are using S100i Controller : keep the Driver downloaded and ready and it may be needed to inject during Installation :


Try the above and share observations.

Thank you
