    SLES12 HP DL380 Gen9 P440ar controller and SAS Expander Car

    Hi everybody,
    I've tried to install SLES12 via Autoyast on a HP DL380 Gen9. Bios is set to legacy mode, hardware is a P440ar controller with SAS Expander Card. During loading the kernel it stop at 64% and after a while the system crash with a trace that says that there is no diskspace. So far, so bad... If I remove the Expander card system is installable. I've then installed the newest kernel 3.12.39-47-default and re-connect the Expander card. System boots up. I don't know if the system is able to recognize the last 4 HDDs because there are only 6 in the machine. I guess I have to build a second logical volume with them.
    Now my question: Is there a way to get the installer to use the newer kernel while first loading it? Or must I rebuild the installer-DVD incl. the initrd on it with the new kernel? Are there things to pay attention on it?
