[SOLVED] Unable to install Proxmox 8 on DL360 G9 - install stops at Creating LVs


Sep 11, 2019
I just bought a HP Proliant DL360 G9 with the following config
  • BIOS P89 v242 (04/25/2017)
  • 2x Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2680 v4 @ 2.40GHz
  • 2x DIMM DDR4 16384 MB 2133 MHz
  • Smart array P440ar
  • Boot mode UEFI
  • 2x Samsung OVO 870GB SSD

1 array of RAID 1 is created on the smart array
The ISO is mounted on a SSD USB disk
During the installation, the logical volume is recognized and is used for the setup of proxmox.
After passing all the steps, and when the actual installation start, the setup freezes at 3%, Creating LVs

See screenshot for the Ctrl+alt+F2

Anyone has ever faced this problem?

Things i've tried
- with RAID 0 -> same problem
- with RAID 1 -> same problem
- removed the array -> Proxmox wont see the drives

Now Im trying with HBA mode, by activating the mode in the Smart array controller, and building ZFS array... will let you know if it works

I found the error... completely missed it in the first screenshot... TMP was disabled...

I simply activated it in BIOS and boom... all works perfectly.
