Problem to reinstallate cell in rx7600

Hello
We have a rx7600. We had HP-UX installed on both cells, but now we want to install Red Hat. We haven't got any problem with the reinstallation of one of them: we inserted the DVD and then we booted selecting the DVD in the EFI.
Our problem is with the second cell, because our server has only one DVD drive so the second cell can't mount it.
How can we solve this problem?
We would appreciate any suggestion :-)

There is no rx7600, but a rx7620 or rx7640.

You probably need another external DVD drive.

Hope this helps!

Sorry, I would mean rx7600 series. Our server is rx7640. Use another DVD is not possible in our case. Is there another possibility, such LAN installation on something like that?

Hi,
If you have an ignite server with a new release of ignite, you could install redhat linux box assume the "6.5 Configuring an HP-UX Server to Support Linux Boot and Installation" of the Ignite-UX Administration Guide for HP-UX 11i edition 32...
http://docs.hp.com/en/5992-5309/index.html
but you could also install it by kickstart dedicate to redhat.
Look at howto on the web like

Hope it helps
