Maybe a driver issue?

Follow the instructions or attempt an offline upgrade by adding the *.rpm hotfix to SPP and boot from.


Hope this helps!

Open / mount the ISO, extract and run usb\hpuskkey\hpusbkey.exe to create a USB thumb drive.

Add

hp-firmware-smartarray-ea3138d8e8-4.58-1.1.x86_64.rpm

into hp\swpackages

and boot from this drive.


Hope this helps!

I think you need to delete the bp{numberstring}.xml file from the packages direcory for this unsupported method to work
