I am trying to install Windows 2008 server on a HP Proliant DL180 G5. There is no built-in DVD reader so I need to use my LaCie USB one.
When I put the CD in and boot from the USB DVD on the server, I get the error message:
Boot Failed! Please insert boot media in selected boot device.
So I tried with another Windows bootable CD and still no luck.
What I've done then, I copied the installation DVD on my 16go USB key. Again, impossible to boot from the USB Key.
I have 2 147go SAS 15k HDD on my server. They are not showing in the Bios. I was wondering if this is a reason why nothing will boot on it.
I am trying to find a way to deploy Windows 2008 server on my HP server as soon as possible.
If you guys have ideas, feel free to let me know :)
Best regards, David.
System Information: HP Proliant DL180 G5 Quad-Core 2.5 4GO Ram 2x 147GO SAS 15k
P.S. This is my first installation ever on SAS/SCSI HDD.
Thanks a bunch!
Well, my bad! I purchased a new USB DVD and now I can install Windows 2008 server.
Thanks a bunch for your help!
