You can use the bootable CD/DVD directly instead of using the physical CD/DVD. The SP can be used to boot from the bootable image. Then, declare the ISO image as the virtual CD-ROM drive.
In the virtual BIOS, you must ask the computer to boot from the CD-ROM. This does not require the actual CD-ROM media for booting. For this method, the booting device can be on the network, in which case, you must specify the IP address. In the directions below, the SP is being used as the network device. You should know the SP IP address.
On a Linux system, this is generally done by pressing the F2 key.
On a Linux system, this is generally done by pressing the F10 key.
The bootloader then looks for the OS binary on the CD-ROM. In the SP, however, a virtual CD-ROM has been created by attaching the ISO image as the CD-ROM image. It therefore boots from your ISO image, and it may be a bit slow when booting from the ISO image. In case that the redirection on the ILOM remote console expires the session, do a reconnect making sure that the keyboard, mouse, and CD-ROM image in the Devices menu are properly checked.
