Starting drivers. Please wait, this may ... take HOURS!!!

Hi

My DL380 Gen9 take hours on point "Starting drivers. Please wait, this may ..." to boot up or go on System Utilities.

BIOS Version: P89 v.2.72
iLO4: 2.62
Smart Array P440ar: 5.04, with local disks no SAN

There is no MicroSD Kit installed.

I didn't find any solution on internet, I also set the BIOS to default still problem exist.

Any ideas?

Regards, Francesco

Any PCIe cards?  NICs?  Disk controllers?  Try pulling them out and see if the behavior changes.

Upgrading to ilo4_276.bin resolved this for us.

Many thanks

updating to the latest ilo didnt work for me, still takes hours to boot.

Hours starting drivers and then further more time waiting for power and thermal calibration

Same Problem here - update iLO to 2.76 did'n solve the problem - any further solutions would be greatly appreciated.

Have you tried powering off the blade, removing the blade from the chassis to reset it completely (i'd give it a minute from doing this), then power it back on?

Hello,

i have this issue with ilo 2.76 and 2.77 The P440ar has 7.00 and the BIOS is 2.76 and the Problem still exist. I try it with a minimal configuration but nothing changed. I have this Problem since a upgrade to 2x v4 CPU. replace against the v3 CPU did not solve the Problem.

Hopefully HPE has an Solution and will share with us...

 

best regards ré
