EFI Menu Help

I have a rx86xx which was handed to me as one large partition.

I have done an ioscan and can see the Hard Drives on all the cells.
I mirrored HD on cell 0 to first HD on cell 1.
I then broke the mirror

I removed a cell board from par0 and I created a new partition 1.
I added the cell board to partition 1 and it shows up as the core.
For some reason no matter what I attempt I am not able to set up the EFI menu to boot to this HD.

Is there a cookbook for adding boot devices to an EFI menu?
Can someone helpme thru the steps of doing this?

Thanks
Mark

Shalom Mark,

You might find doing an Ignite backup to replicate this system will work better than what you are trying.

Each virtual machine needs a CPU a boot disk and networking.

Check your configuration that none of this is shared between the two machines you are tyring to create.

Re: EFI Menu Help

Hi Mark,

here a guide:

http://docs.hp.com/en/AD217-9015B/apcs05.html#babfhfeh

It refers to Blade but that guide contains a good step-by-step procedure to add boot devices to EFI Boot Manager. It applies to rx Integrity servers as well.

HTH.

Best regards,
Fabio
