HP ProLiant DL380 OS Install

When choosing the media to install Windows 2008 sp2 x64 in Intelligent Provisioning, DVDs cannot be accessed.  USB flash drives are found and read, but cannot be booted to or an ISO loaded from them to install the OS.

The USB has been formatted with NTFS, then Fat32.  A new DVD has been burned from Microsoft's download of Server 2008.

The Hard Drives are set up as a RAID 5 for the OS and a separate RAID 5 for data.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

"No images are available" is standard for NTFS USB sticks but should be OK with FAT32.

Have you tried using a network share for the ISO?

I have not ran the install over the network, only through USB and DVD.

I was not using that download from HP,  I will check it out.
