DL360 G6 Boot from External Hard Drive

I need to reload the operating system, which is supplied to me on a DL DVD. The DVD drive in my 360 does not read DL disks. Can I boot from an external DVD connected via USB? So far, the server does not see it.

 

Thanks

Hi,

 

In RBSU (BIOS) make sure Legacy USB Disabled is enabled.

When Legacy USB Disabled is selected, all USB ports are enabled under a USB-aware OS, but USB is not supported during POST or RBSU. Legacy USB Disabled also disables iLO 2 virtual devices.

 

Make sure Boot Order is set to CDROM.

Try with front and rear USB ports.

 

Thank You!
