Blade 460 windows installation

Hi, what's the easiest way to install Windows 2003 OS to a Blade 460 server other than RDP?

Hi Korhan,

You can use the I/O cable, plug a screen, keyboard and external USB CD/DVD drive.
Use the smart start CD and continue the installation as usual.

Hope this helps.

I would use the ILOE and the virtual media option for the CD ROM. It is a little slow, but works well.

Yes easiest way is to use virtual media option of ILO. So u don't need to even go to server.
Just can use image or cd.

Re: Blade 460 windows installation

There are many ways to install windows rather than the rdp. the easiest way is to install the windows is through the smart start cd by connecting a usb cd rom to the front side of the server through the i/o cable shipped with the server or else you can download the cd form the hp website by selecting your server. this will help you to install the operating system as well as hp utilites and drivers of the system hassel free. you can also do thourgh the ilo remotely this will help you to install remotely but will be bit slow.
