supermicro blade chassis server ipmi question

Last Modified: 2016-03-12
I am attempting to use a super micro 3u BB super server sys-5037MC-H8TRF blade server  to install esx remotely , I have an issue where whatever I do I cannot seem to pass any commands thru the virtual ( or other ) keyboard , I also cannot seem to get it to mount a ISO to install the esx ,

I am thinking that this is a java or a browser problem , what version of java is best and what browser is best ?

the firmware is 03.19 and it was bought in late 2014

i CANNOT seem to get the virtual storage to not be greyed out ,  

virtual storage is grayed outimage on windows share , is this how to boot an ISO???????
