Poweredge 3250 CD Booting
Posted on 2006-11-24
I have purchased three 2nd User DELL Poweredge 3250's and I'm having trouble getting an OS loaded onto it.
It will not boot from any cd that i put in the drive. Their are no options in the BIOS for boot order.
In the Boot manager, i am unable to select a CD drive, it does not get recognized. Something was said about El torito format disks, but on further inspection it appears that all "bootable" disks are as such.
I am able to mount a pen drive in teh EEFI shell and view files on that, but am unable to do the same with CDs.
Can anybody shine any light on the subject.
It is not hardware failure as the same procedure has been replicated on all three machines.
Help please! Quite urgent need to ghet these up and running asap hence 500 points.
