install RHEL 5.3 in rx7640

Does anyone know how to install RHEL5 in rx7640?
We've been trying to install, but the machine won't boot the RHEL installer CD. In EFI shell, we only see blk0 to blk3 and there is no fs (vfat file system). The server is a new one, so i can say it is clean from any OS. Please help, thanks.. :)

I assume you are installing an Itanium version of RH?

"AMD / Intel 64" is written on the CD. Is it the correct CD version?

No. That doesn't say Itanium does it?
rx7640 is an Integrity server, not a Proliant.

Shalom,

Just a note, if you decide to use Linux (IA-64) on that box. Red Hat has announced they are not porting RHEL 6.x to that platform. So RHEL 5.x is as far as you will ever go with that hardware, unless RH changes its mind.
