How do I install a Windows certificate on a RAC card for a N54L?

Im trying to install a Windows certificate from a Windows CA on a RAC card for a N54L. The issue is that I believe I cannot do this without importing the private key onto the RAC.

Can someone help out?

Greetings!

                     Please follow the below steps to generate the windows certificate on a RAC card for a N54L:

1) log in to the Remote Access Card GUI using my browser.

2) click "Generate Certificate" on the "security" page, and make a CSR by filling in the required information thus:

Common Name:  [the IP address of the remote access card]

Organization name: [Your name]

Organization name: [Your name]

Locality: eg:Setagaya

State name: eg:Tokyo

Country Code: eg:Japan

Email:  [Your email address]

I then clicked "Generate Certificate" and saved the "csr.crt" to my PC

3) open up command prompt on my win 7 pc "as administrator"

4) cd to the \Program Files (x86)\GnuWin32\bin directory

5) type openssl

6) type genrsa -des3 -out server.key 4096

enter pass phrase for server.key

7) type x509 -req -days 365 -in csr.txt -signkey server.key -out server.crt

Enter pass phrase for server.key

  click "Upload Certificate"

9) select the server.crt which you just  generated with opensll

10)The Certificate should get uploaded.

Note: At any point, if you see any errors please share the details with a screenshot.
