Issue with Centos 8 on HPE DL385 Gen 10

Post by admx » 2020/02/06 16:46:45

Hi folks,

I have few HPE DL385 gen 10 servers with 2x AMD EPYC 7401 CPUs.

Problem is that I always get black screen during installation after anaconda will be started.

I mean when I try Graphical install , text mode works great but I need thin provisioning .

Do you have any idea how I can fix that problem ?

Already updated bios and ilo firmwares , tried some kernel parameters like nomodeset and others .

What about if you take the "install in basic video" option off the initial Troubleshooting menu?

You tried vnc and got the same result on the vnc console once you connected?

Well then it sounds like something else is going on as vnc wouldn't use any of the server hardware for display at all.

Did you verify the sha256sum of your downloaded iso image file against the list published in the relevant release notes? How are you booting this? From USB or via an iso attached through the virtual media option? If via the iLO, don't forget that this thing has to load several hundred megabytes of data from the iso and at the speeds I get on my remote consoles, that could be about 10 minutes worth or more.

I always check sha256sum .

I try to boot from ILO attached ISO and yes I know that there`ll be some delay but I was waiting it for few hours lol :D

I`ve wasted more than 1 week on this problem already.

Then decided to ask community ...
