Installed Server 2012R2 using iLO4


Recommended Posts



From within iLO4 I install Windows Server 2012R2 on the logical drive I created earlier in SSA (“Smart Storage Administrator”) with two Samsung 256GB 840 Pro SSD’s in RAID0 on my HP ProLiant ML10v2.  I attach the SATA III (6GB/s) connectors 1 and 2 to the SSD’s.  I used Icy Dock EZConvert Air to be able to install the SSD’s in the 3.5” positions.  I attached the ISO for Windows Server 2012R2 to the virtual DVD drive in iLO4 and attached a virtual file folder in iLO4 containing the drivers for the HP Dynamic Smart Array B120i Controller that I had extracted from the file CP024079.exe using 7-Zip.


While I haven't tried it yet I suspect the procedure would be basically the same for Current OS's like W8.1 and W10 or S2016 -- older OS's like W7 and S2008R2 would probably need the NIC drivers during installation YMMV.  Something to test in the future :)


I made a video of the Install: https://youtu.be/z3jPReyTg4k
