Hi, do you insert the CD? Via virtual media in iLO?

Does the windows 2003 media work by itself or on another machine?

hi Bhujang, hope you solved your problem at this time!

in some cases 8.25 may fail recog. the CD even the original. in those cases you can select to install from files ans select /media/cdrom as the source.


HTH in the future.
