Installation Guide for Windows Operating System
To manually install Windows Server 2008 (SP2 or R2), complete the following procedures in order:
Obtain the tools and drivers firmware by downloading the latest drivers and utilities available for your Sun x86 server platform as described in Chapter 5, Getting Server Firmware and Software.
The install program for the Windows Server 2008 SP2 does not include the LSI drivers for the Sun Storage SAS PCIe HBA options. Therefore, if you have a SAS PCIe HBA configured on your server and you are installing Windows 2008 SP2, the LSI mass storage driver for the SAS PCIe HBA option must be made accessible from the tools and drivers firmware DVD during the installation process.
For a list of SAS PCIe HBAs supported on the Sun Server X2-4, see SAS PCIe HBAs Requiring LSI Mass Storage Driver for Windows Server 2008 SP2.
Note - Optionally, advanced users might prefer to incorporate the drivers into WDS images. For instructions on how to incorporate the drivers into WDS images, see Appendix D, Incorporating Device Drivers Into Windows Server 2008 WIM Images for Windows Deployment Services.
Choose and set up an installation method for deploying the Windows Server installation as described in Appendix A, Supported Installation Methods.
Follow the instructions for performing a manual installation of the Windows Server operating system as described in Chapter 3, Installing Windows Server 2008.
Follow the instructions for performing the Windows Server post installation tasks as described in Chapter 4, Post Installation of Windows Server 2008.
