I am attempting to install Centos 6 or 7 on a backup server Proliant DL380p Gen 8 with a p420i controller. The problem is when I use the intelligent provisioning built in to setup the raid and such, it only gives me 4 options to install Microsoft Windows, RedHat Linux, VMWare ESX, or VMWare custom image. Under each of those you can select
USB. The problem is I want to install Centos, and when I select Redhat Linux it will only let me choose
Disc, and then if I click next it says:
"Please attach some optical or iLO media before continuing"
and USB is not an option under Redhat Linux install.
If I choose the
VMWare custom or
VMWare ESX option, the USB option is available, and when I click next on that I can browse through my USB drive but it will not load the Centos ISO and allow me to continue.
I have tried just making a bootable usb with Centos and loading from the bios with no luck. I keep getting a screen that says
"Attempting Boot from USB DriveKey (C:) Remove disks or other media. Press any key to restart."
Also this server does not have a CD-ROM drive. Please help.
Thanks in advance.
