Does Smartstart support assisted OS installation of linux (rhel/suse)

Hello Members

The quick specs for HP insight for proliant server - refer the following link -

http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/13431_na/13431_na.pdf

states that assisted OS install is done only for windows.

Request folks to confirm that it is so

Thanks
Srihari

Re: Does Smartstart support assisted OS installation of linux (rhel/suse)

Can someone advise the process for loading a Linux OS with SmartStart.

My Customer advises that they only get option to install Windows with SmartStart 8.30 .

From reading the readme.txt on the SmartStart, it looks like you need to boot into Linux and then run a the Linux version of SmartStart.

This seems a little backward to have to boot into an os to run an assisted OS deployment.

has anyone done this, can they outline the steps involved.

Thanks
Sam
