My Server wont boot when i insert a 10TB IronWolf drive in a slot. Firmware of the P840 ist 7.00 (newest afaik) and ILO has also been updated to latest revision.

Still the server hangs on "Starting drivers. Please wait, this may take minutes" and never goes bejond this step. When i insert a 1TB HP SAS drive i dont have any issues.

I want to use it in HBA mode and boot from USB anyway, so i dont know what exactly the boot/driver thing would do for me.

Is there some way to make it recognize the disk / skip this check on boot? I'd apreciate any hints... even if its buy xxx card for it to work.
