  7. From the Devices menu, select one CD item according to the delivery method you have chosen.
    • CD-ROM Remote. Select CD-ROM to redirect the server to the operating system software CD/DVD contents from the CD/DVD-ROM drive attached to the JavaRConsole system.

    • CD-ROM Image. Select CD-ROM Image to redirect the server to the operating system software .iso image file located on the JavaRConsole system.


      Caution

      Caution - Using the CD-ROM or CD-ROM Image option to install the Windows Server significantly increases the time necessary to perform the installation as the content of the CD-ROM is accessed over the network. The installation duration depends on the network connectivity and traffic. This installation method also has a greater risk of issues due to transient network errors.
