Re: DL380p Gen8 Window Server 2016 stuck spinning circle during installation

Dear KSram

WHAT did I do?
1. Upgraded to iLO 4
2. Upgraded Bios to the latest version
3. Upgraded Intelligent Provisioning
4. Trying installation WS 2012,2016,2019 manually booting will be stuck in Spinning dots blue logo
5. Installed WS 2008 r2 then install WS 2016 inside it. WS 2016 hadn’t frozen in blue logo (Spinning dots) step and installed all HPE drivers, but after some restart and shutdowns it got the same subject problem
6. In Bios I tried to change System option>>SATA controller options>>Embedded SATA configuration, there is no 'Enable Dynamic Raid HP smart array .... Raid support', so I tried to downgrade the Bios but to get that option but couldn't find it.
What is your idea to get a solution, please? ( I think it is in bios)
it is about four days I am working on the Server.
Thanks

Hi,

Please try the below : 

1) Clear NVRAM

2) Clear RAID confiuration and create new RAID

3) Reset BIOS to default.

4) Run SPP - Gen.8.1, then update update BIOS and ILO Firmware seperately.

5) Try fresh Installation.
