Support Pack for Proliant Firmware Update

Question

I'm trying to boot with the Support Pack for Proliant DVD and every time I try it the boot process hangs loading drivers. I've tried the last two DVD without luck. I've also tryed to create a boot USB key but it hangs in the same step.

 

The servers I try to boot are Prolian DL580 G7. I've tried in three of them and in all cases it can't boot. any ideas?

 

If I boot the iso, or the DVD, in a virtualbox virtual machine it boots very quickly!

 

The iso's that I'm using are this:

HP_Service_Pack_for_Proliant_2013.02.0-0_725490-001_spp_2013.02.0-SPP2013020.2013_0204.107.iso

HP_Service_Pack_for_Proliant_2012.10.0-0_713293-001_spp_2012.10.0-SPP2012100.2012_1005.37.iso

The md5 hash is correct.

Answer

Disconnecting the fiber should resolve this particular problem.

I have the same issue but on a DL380G5, no fibre attached (FC HBA is installed, no cables attached)  will try without the HBA and report back.
