hallo everyone,

im new here, i just bought a new Gen8. i have 3 Disks

 

                   2 old WD greed Disk 1G Sata3G in slot 3 and 4 installed and

                   1 Samsung SSD 250 Evo 840

 

i want to install ESXI on the SSD, using ssd as a vm pool, and booting from it.

 

i setup like this:

 

                   SSD (ODD) array 0 as port1 of the array controller.

 

                   2WD array 1 as Port 2 of the array controller.

 

                   Array Controller setup Port1 as primary boot disk.

 

then i find if i have all 3 disk installed after that setup.  i cant boot up Gen8.

i cant use F10 or F5 to active HP smart storage or  Inteligent Provisioning. or even worse, F9 F11 not funktion!

i just stuck here,and cant do anything. what i can do just power switch...

If the SSD is the only drive in the server it will boot?

Can you enter the SSA by hitting F5 if the SSD is the only drive in the system?

If so, please post a screen shot of the SSA configuration page.

                  SSD (ODD) array 0 as port1 of the array controller.

 

                   2WD array 1 as Port 2 of the array controller.

 

                   Array Controller setup Port1 as primary boot disk.
