I have a blade server that was imaged prior to me getting my hands on it. It's a hot swap four drive RAID, no CD.
I'm trying to load Linux onto it (Ubuntu if it matters), but the BIOS doesn't allow for usb boot, which I always use, and it doesn't have a CD drive...
My main thought it I should grab one of the hot swap drives, plug it into another linux box, save an image onto it, and plug it back in to the server, however, I know a lot of hardware issues could arise since the servers aren't the same model.
Suggestions and insight are very much appreciated.
