ML150 OS INSTALLATION

Hi everyone!

I have here a unit of ML150 Gen9 Server with (2) 500Gb SATA Drives

However I am having a hard time searching for a reliable documentation on how to install the Windows Server 2012 (evaluation), from the very start for this is the first time for me to configure one.

I will be using a Bootable UEFI Flash Drive made based on this link... https://support.hpe.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=c05088046

I understand that the OS burned inside this Bootable Drive will be automatically loaded once I get in the Intelligent Provisioning, however;

1. Disregarding the update for the drivers (skipping it), Do I have to first configure the RAID Arrays in the HPE Smart Storage Administrator part?

2. Do I have to disable UEFI settings and enable only the LEGACY BIOS Mode?

Because everytime I proceed with the installation in LEGACY/UEFI Mode, the screen always says "the configured partition of 0 mb is less than the minimum size of 49152 MB" 

and then the installation hangs .

I would appreciate also if you can post me here a link or something that has instructions on how I can install windows on this server via Intelligent Provisioning, locally as in a single server being installed with an OS, no PXEs. 

Thanks!

Re: ML150 OS INSTALLATION

Thank you for these materials !

Following through these, I followed the steps based on USB Installation with the UEFI mode, and I made the installation medium using the procedures in this link:

 https://support.hpe.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=c05088046

I succeeded in the initial installation procedures via Intelligent Provisioning... 

However, this image appears, an error occured .

"Windows Cannot find the Microsoft Software License Terms. Make sure the Installation Sources are valid and restart the installation"

 

I Tried navigating through the Installation files  inside the USB Drive containing the OS, and found out the EI.CFG File with this content:

[Channel]
eval
[VL]
0

Is this the concern?
