I just installed RHEL on a clean machine, first time anything has been installed on it

I can not boot up on it however

How can I add to the boot list the disk ?

I do not see any options on the main screen or the Remote Control or theVirtual Media session

When you install rhel it should automatically install the MBR record if you chose to install it.

The bigger question is what kind of errors are you getting? Are you getting no bootable media? Is it seeing the disk? are you going straight to network or cd?

Are you using the remote control functionality of the IMM or are you local to the server?

I found it, its not in the IMM screen itself, but one of the panels displayed by the Remote Control

Restarted the Machine

Waited on the 'System Initialization' message

Waited for the 'IBM System x Server Firmware' screen
   'Warning Nonproduction (TEST) image' on top right of screen
   'Connecting Boot Devices and Adpaters...' message at bottom of screen

Hit 'F1' on next screen

Blue Screen:

System Information
System Settings
Date and Time
