"Windows cannot be installed to this disk. This computer´s hardware may not support booting to this disk. Ensure that the disk´s controller is enabled in the computer´s BIOS menu."
I created Raid 0, Raid 1 and only HDD and the problem persists.
The firmware is updated:
Detects raid controller:
When you are trying to install the OS, does it actually sees the local LUNs to complete the installation? If you cannot see it, what it means is that you will need to "un-map" the OS, map the drivers, go back and then the OS will show you the local LUNs and the install will be then succesful.
If that is not the situation, then provide me a screenshot of where you are getting stuck. Also remember to select the right controller model when opening the drivers for the controller.

When I try to install the OS does not see the Local LUNs, but "un-map" the OS, map the drivers:
Go back, map OS, and then the OS show the local LUNs, but the installation can not continue to have the following error:
What raid controller model are you using for this installation?
In UCS Manager if you select the sever then go to inventory->storage tab if you expand the disk area, how many disks do you see?
If you don't see any disks it is possible the optionRom for this controller is disabled, if this is a PCIe base controller go to the bios by pressing F2 the go to the advance option and select option that has on it PCIe LOM once you are there search for the slot where this controller is installed and make sure to enable the optionROM.
Also send me a screenshot of the boot screen when it give you the option to get into the configuration for the raid on this controller, where you have to press Ctrl-H or Ctrl-c..etc
This is the boot policy:
This is the screenshot of the boot screen:
In ucs manager disks do not appear, but I read in forums that this controller the information is not displayed.
Thank you very much
Can you try to reset CIMC and try one more time?
Cisco Support Community is also present in Spanish:
Please open a TAC case, the issue might be related to a boot order config issue and we might need to get in a Webex meeting to take a closer look.
I can not open a case for now. He bought many products from Cisco and are recording all serial numbers.
I'll have to wait, but it is very urgent ...
This is a long shot but lets give it a try, I noticed that in your boot policy the mode boot mode is set to Legacy, can you change this to Uefi for testing purposes? You may need to reboot the server for this change to take place.
One more question, please provide,
1) the version of the driver package that you are using for the install,
2) the UCSM version your enviroment is running
3) the path to the folder that you are selecting to the drivers
4) And make sure that you are using a 64bit ISO version if you are using the 32bit this will not work.
When I try to create a TAB, the SN server does not appear in my company's account.
When I put UEFI OS installation is successful, but then Windows will not start, do not see the boot.
The ISO OS is 64 bits.
We had problems for weeks, see eg. https://supportforums.cisco.com/message/4101885#4101885
Although in our case it was W2012, I think the generic problem is Raid Controller; we also had a TAC open for weeks !
I would recommend that you upgrade UCS to 2.1.2b, and CIMC,.... accordingly.
What is the status ?
When we got this error message, we also tried a Server ACK (under the Server Maintenance), which in some cases helped.
If in the standalone mode the issue takes place or not, I strongly recommend to open a TAC case since this should not happen as long as the partition size is the minimum recommended. I just had a case where the issue seemed to be the drive partition being too small. So if this is not your issue case, please get TAC to take a look at the server.
