Trying to boot from a USB on a Dell PowerEdge T110-II

Last Modified: 2016-11-23
I have the ISO for Server 2012R2 essentials.  I want to install it on a Dell PowerEdge T110-II

I put the ISO on a bootable 8GB USB stick.

I can boot off the USB on a vostro 200 I have. So that makes me think I did the ISO to USB correctly.

2 things -

1) depending on boot mode, I either do or don't see the USB stick (see attached 2 pictures).

2) when I do see the USB and boot off it, I get a message:

Boot failed
Please ensure compatible bootable media Is available.
Use the system setup program to change the boot mode as needed.
