ML110 G10 - How to specify the OS Hard Drive for Express OS Installation

hi there!

 

Today I tested an Installation of Windows from an SMB Share (ISO) which worked great so far. Anyways I dont get the prompt of choosing where (Which Logical Drive) Windows should be installed to.

 

How can I define in Intelligent Provisioning where to Install Windows because I have several Arrays. Does it Always pick first Array with first Logical Drive?

 

Thanks!

Is this a Boot from SAN scenario that you are referring to.

No it's setup to boot from an ISO over SMB Network share.

 

In Express OS Setup you can then specify a lot of things like Language - Hostname etc but not where to install the OS.

As far as I've seen now it picks the first Logical Drive in the first Array.... 

Is it possible to specify the Drive on where the OS should be installed? Im talking about WinSrv2016

Do you even get to a point where you ideally see the option to create new partition. Do you get any errors. I am kind of not getting your scenario. If we normally get errors we can press Shift F10 and this takes us to CMD where we can use diskpart to create the same. Is this something that you might have tried or i am missing something.

No sorry not. It runs trough like a unattended setup - I just have to agree the EULA - after that the setupr runs straight trough till Windows Login...

Well in that case, the only way out would be to modify the answer file which is answering all the queries itself.

Sure so where is iLO generating this answer file while Express OS installation and how can I edit it before deploying?

 

Thanks

I am not certain about where that file is but as far the Windowos is concerned, you should get some idea from https://support.microsoft.com/ja-jp/help/155197/howto-unattended-setup-parameters-for-unattend-txt-file
