Embedding a Hypervisor onto an SD card or USB drive
Posted on 2009-07-16
Never done this before, so here's the situation:
-New Dell PowerEdge R610, which has an internal USB port and an internal SD card slot - right on the motherboard.
-I have downloaded Hyper-V Server (950MB .ISO file) and want to install it.
-Dell gives you the option to ship with the embedded hypervisor, but we didn't choose that option, because they didn't include Hyper-V (only Xen and VMWare). So I have to do it manually. Is there an easy way of doing this?
Do I just copy the .ISO file to the SD card (or the USB stick) and set the BIOS order to boot from that internal drive? I've tried this with the USB, but it isn't working. What am I missing? There is zero documentation out there for this process.
Thanks for your help.
