Installing RHAS 3.0 on rx2620

I am installing Redhat on rx2620. I can do it with output to "ttyS0". But I like to use grafics/gui during the installation. What option in EFI forces output to video-adapter at the beginning of installation?

See the hardware guide. I don't remember exactly but there is a menu in EFI that allows you to select the INPUT and OUPUT devices.

You can do it by connecting a monitor and setting up output device in EFI prompt.

Thank you. I hope this will work for me.

This is what I found in "Installing Linux® on HP Integrity Servers":

About VGA and Serial Consoles
_____________________________
If a VGA console is available, it will be the default. If you are using a serial console as your display screen, you must configure it prior to using the HP Enablement Kit for Linux. See â Appendix C - Configuring Your Consoleâ in this booklet for more information.

In my case there is no default for VGA. That is why I asked. Thaks.
