Re: USB boot C3000

What does it mean - can't seem to get any of my Bl460 g5 servers to boot from it?

Any messages? Where do you connect the stick? On the dongle? Mapped as virtual drive? Maybe the 8.3 version is just to old?

I successfully booted them with the current FW maintenance version (stick connected to the dongle).

Hope this helps!
