rx1600 Linux Installation

I'm having issues installing RH 3.0 on an rx1600.

I have followed the Linux Enablement Kit instructions, have installed the enablement kit. At reboot the EFI sees no valid CD/DVD device after inserting the distribution media.

I have followed the advice from a similar thread on installation for an rx2600. No luck. Any ideas of what to try next?

Thanks

Hi Brad,

you don't need the enablement kit for installing RH 3.0 onto the itanium.
If i think right you have got 4 installation-CDs from Red Hat.

Before RH 3.0 there was RH 2.1 where there was a RH Linux Adv. Server 2.1 Recovery DVD within and that needed hp enablement kit.
RH 3.0 doesn't need that anymore.

Insert the CD1 from the Installation-CDs and in the EFI list up (via "ls") the files in the CD.
Then if there is a file called "elilo.efi" type in elilo.

When "elilo: " turns up, type in (only if you are accessing the rx1600 via console)
"linux console=ttyS0" RETURN

Now the setup should begin and you
just have to follow the instructions.
