Greetings All,

I have an IBM eSeries blade chassis that we just added (3) new IBM HS22V blade servers to.  I'm having trouble getting the chassis to boot off of the CD, which is a VMWare ESX 3.5 iso.  Any thoughts/ suggestions?

Much appreciated!

Thank You-

Thanks mwecomputers.  After working with IBM, it had to do with already having a blade server in Bay 6.  Once I removed blade from bay 6, it booted.  Thanks for posting though.
