[SOLVED] Intelligent provisioning stuck at HP logo


I'm trying to install Windows Server 2019 (1809) Datacenter on a brand new server, but when it reboots after going through the IP settings it shows a gray bar in the bottom saying "Loading files . . ." (like when starting a windows installation) and then it just hangs at "Hewlett Packard Enterprise" logo.

Windows is an ISO stored on a USB key formatted with exFAT. I can select it fine doing the IP setup. Then i can see it copying data in the "job viewer" and finally it says that it needs to reboot to continue the installation. And this is where it then gets stuck at the HP logo.

I have already configured the OS drive and data drive in the Smart array configurator.


Here are the specs:

Server: ProLiant DL325 Gen10 Plus with a AMD EPYC 7302P CPU

Application version: 3.40.192

BMC: iLO 5 v2.12

ROM: A43 v1.16

IP abstraction Data: 2.1.0 Build 16

Power monitor controller: 1.0.7

Power monitor bootloader: 1.1

RAID controller: HPE Smart Array P408i-a SR Gen 10 Hw. Rev. B




It turns out you have to follow this guide:

For AMD EPYC systems.
