Re: boot dvd from efi shell

For the server, iLO Virtual Media is actually an USB device.

So I think this is the virtual DVD you're looking for:

blk0 : Acpi(HWP0002,PNP0A03,0)/Pci(2|0)/Usb(0, 2)

Matti,

If you have the Virtual DVD mounted it will show up as a device like a normal DVD. Do an IOSCAN and when you find it, normally something like /dev/dsk/c1t1d0 it will say Virtual Media. Mount this somewhere and you will be good to go.

Re: boot dvd from efi shell

If the ILO is mounted all you should have to do is select boot from ILO and it should know where it is.

Re: boot dvd from efi shell

As said, its here:

blk0 : Acpi(HWP0002,PNP0A03,0)/Pci(2|0)/Usb(0, 2)


But there is no readable boot area.


What kind of DVD is it (contents)?

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
