How did you install it? What error message does it last show? Post dmesg or /var/log/message.

Try reinstall manually with the iso.

I think you need to add hpsa parameter on first boot,  and then fix it in /detv/susconfig/grub, then grub2-mkconfig
Then it will boot fine.
Alternatively you may install old cciss driver from elrepo.org on that very first boot and add it to dracut.conf

First you need to add hpsa_allow_any to boot command line
Press up/down arrows until you see boot options. Edit topmost and your options to a (wrapped) line thet starts with "linux"

Add the hpsa option to a CMDLINE_LINUX or similar line:
/etc/sysconfig/grub
Then run grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg

btw debian and ubuntu has solid support for old hardware.
