What version of Ubuntu? There are many customers running Debian/Ubuntu on ProLiant hardware.   The hw pmu resources message like the i8042 message is well documented here in the forums.  They are just informational messages and are not anything related to the issue you are seeing.

More information on your configuration may help someone provide assistance.  What hard drives and  RAID controller are you working with.  Assuming this was  previously configured system did you set the system back to default, and clear any data and or partitions from the drives?

Re: can not install ubuntu on DL380 G8

What version of Ubuntu are you trying to install? If you've already reset the BIOS settings to default and created a clean array (always try this first if installing on baremetal), you might try a version older or a version newer and see if that helps. Bugs make it out on releases from time to time that may get fixed before the following release but until the developers can see it, they can't fix it, and even a large outfit like Canonical can't test every hardware configuration.
