HP Proliant DL385 Gen10 refuses to boot FreeBSD 11

Got a new HP Proliant DL385 Gen10 Server and wanted to install
FreeBSD. Starting from FreeBSD-11.1-RELEASE-amd64-bootonly.iso mounted
via the iLo virtual CD device the system started with the usual
install boot, but then suddenly crashed and rebooted the whole system
- boot loop basically.
I started playing around in the BIOS of the System trying UEFI
vs. legacy BIOS, as well a bunch of other parameters but to no extent:
the system just crashes when upon booting from the installation media :-(
To cross check I tried to boot a Linux installation media (Ubuntu
Server 16.04) and the server booted from the Linux ISO without any
problem. So I'm pretty sure it's something FreeBSD related.
o) Anybody else out there seen a problem like this on a HP DL385 Gen10?
o) Any cure against it?
Thanks much in advance for any clue,
