This section describes the requirements for using local and remote media.
Local boot media requires a built-in storage device on the server, or an external storage device attached to the server.
The only supported OS local boot media source is CD/DVD-ROM installation media.
Remote media requires you to boot the install over the network. You can start the network install from a redirected boot storage device or another networked system that exports the installation over the network using a Pre-Boot eXecution Environment (PXE).
Supported OS remote boot media sources can include:
CD/DVD-ROM installation media
CD/DVD-ROM ISO installation image
Automated installation image (requires PXE boot)
