Anyone successfully install Server 2012 R2 Essentials on a Microserver N36L,N40L,N54L ?

Remove your 3rd party nic card. Disable boot using nic in the BIOS. You should be able to finish the install. Once that's all setup, install the nic card and boot into SAFE mode. See if you can install the nic drivers.

Hey I just thought of a new tag line for the BYOB.  Build your own box, It installs... :D   What do you think...

Ok, got it to work.  Pulled the intel nic out and it installed R2 with no problem.  Put the nic back in and it booted up and detected the card with no problem.  It has been a long time since I have had to pull cards out just to get the operating system to install. Kind of sad considering it is a standard intel nic.  I remember back in the day installing a fresh load of windows and pulling my creative sound cards and installing them after the operating system was loaded.  Been so long I didn't even think to do this.

 

thanks for the help.

I suspect strongly that this will be addressed before it's RTM.

Glad to hear it. Congrats.

 

Would you mind testing to see if you can get the builtin nic to work ?

Can you enable it in the BIOS and see if the server completes to boot.

      My HP Proliant Microserver Gen 8 won't install HP Tools when I have running HP Smart Update Manager. 
      even when I have trying to install via Intelligent Provising, Windows Server 2019.

      Hi everyone.
       
      New to this forum.
      I have a gen8 microserver running at home, where I have installed an SSD in the ODD sata slot. On the SSD I have installed Ubuntu Server 18.04.
      I have then created a logical volume witht the raid controller and can then boot to the SSD. So far so good.
      My problem emerges when I reboot the system. The logical volume disapears and it gives the error: "boot logical drive is configured but is missing or offline".
      I then have to go into the utility and reconfigure the logical volume. Kind of annoying, when trying to run a headless setup.

      Greetings,
       
      I'm new to the HPMSG8 world and so far I'm loving it. I have a stock Xeon with 16G of aftermarket memory with iLO patched to 2.70. Next up is adding a RAID card, so I can put my boot SSD on the onboard RAID. I picked up a LSI SAS9211-8i on Amazon, but am struggling to flash it to IT mode on the MicroServer. Is this even possible? Unfortunately, the only other system I have with PCI slots is 32-bit.
       
      Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.

      FYI, I have just installed Windows Server 2019 Standard (Desktop Experience) using the latest (WS2016) HP AMD chipset & VGA driver. Everything is recognised in Device Manager and stable.

      I need to update the firmware on a HP Proliant Microserver Remote Access Card installed in my N40L.
       
      Can someone please explain what I need to do to create a boot device that will update the firmware on the Remote Access Card?
       
      Thanks
