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.
Supported OS local boot media sources can include:
CD/DVD-ROM installation media, and, if applicable, floppy device driver 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 media
Automated installation image (requires PXE boot)
