How to install Windows Server 2008 trial on HP Proliant D380
Posted on 2010-11-26
I'm trying to install Windows Server 2008 trial on a HP Proliant D380, but so far without luck.
I tried booting the 32 bit and 64 bit installer from a CD, but the system doesn't recognise both of them.
The CD-rom drive is upfront in the boot sequence, but the booting process skips the CD each time.
It is possible to mount the CD's in an ordinary PC client, so the problem can't be the CD's.
Also, the CD drive in the server successfully mounts a Linux installer, so the problem can't lie there either.
Any advice? Perhaps I'm using the wrong installer files?
