Boot from CD

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.8 for x86.

I have an old HP ProLiant ML350 G3. Even the boot hardware stage turns on the CD light, when the system looks for boot, shows a message saying that is trying boot from CD-ROM but it does not find boot and tray the next next boot device until it finds boot in the hard disk.

The boot CD I am using works well in other machines.

The server was recently installed so I think the CD-ROM device is working well.

Any idea?

Re: Boot from CD

Hi,
I think only the ML350G5 is supported with redhat 4

The quickspec of the ML350 G3 write that only redhat 2.1 is supported, that's why i think you could'nt boot with the cdrom.
Hope it helps

Re: Boot from CD

It dose not matter is the version of linux supported or not, but try to replace the CD-ROM, or clean it.
