Problem installing Windows server 2019 with Intelligent Provisioning on Proliant ML350 Gen10

Hi,
When I'm trying to install Windows server 2019 datacenter on a Proliant ML350 Gen10 server using Intelligent Provisioning, the install halt at this error:

x:\windows\system32>hpev CQTESS=
ERROR: deleting EV CQTESS

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<EnvironmentVariables Count="0">
<Environment variables>

x:\windows\system32>exit /b 0

x:\windows\system32>

I got those firmwares on the server:

System ROM U41 v2.00
Intelligent Provisioning version : 3.30.213

Someone knows what causing this to fail?
Thanks

Hello Patawaka,

Please re-flash the IP with the same version below is the link

https://support.hpe.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?swItemId=MTX_5e12f516782745b1a7ac115e7f#tab-history

Update BIOS to latest version below is the link

https://support.hpe.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?swItemId=MTX_57e2d3128c9246f9b801c4c470

or Run the latest SPP

Re-try installing the OS using the IP 

If the issue persists, the only option is to do a manual OS install (direct OS install with IP) and load the controller driver while OS installation.

I have exactly the same problem and unfortunately that solution doesn’t work.

If you look at the description of IP 3.30 for operating system it doesn’t support Windows Server 2019, in fact it doesn’t even support Windows Server 2016.

When one tries to install the first error that appears is “Error locating the Intelligent Provisioning drive letter” and later on the errror mentioned before by Patawaka “Error deleting EV CQTESS”.

It’s a shame that HP has no tool for the installation of windows Server 2019.

I really miss COMPAQ!
