For additional information about how to set up the installation media, see Selecting the Boot Media Option.
The BIOS screen appears.
Note - The next events occur very quickly; therefore, focused attention is needed for the following steps. Watch carefully for these messages as they appear on the screen for a brief time. You might want to enlarge the size of your screen to eliminate scroll bars.
The Please Select Boot Device menu appears.
The device strings listed in the Boot Device menu are in the following format: device type, slot indicator, and product ID string.
After a few seconds, the splash screen for the Oracle VM Server installation program appears.
At this time the Oracle VM installation program installs the Oracle VM Server and the Oracle VM Agent.
The Partitioning Type screen appears.
Caution - In the Partitioning Type screen shown above, the Oracle SSM drive is the Oracle System Assistant USB flash drive. You might have to scroll to the bottom of the screen to see this drive. You should never select the Oracle SSM drive as the OS installation drive. Installing Oracle VM to the Oracle SSM drive will overwrite the Oracle System Assistant software and the Oracle System Assistant will have to be restored. For instructions for restoring Oracle System Assistant, see the Installation, Setting Up Software and Firmware Using Oracle System Assistant.
The Oracle VM Management Interface screen appears.
Note - The Oracle VM installation will require two passwords: one for the root VM Server account and one for the VM Agent. When necessary, refer to the Oracle VM Server Installation Guide at: http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E20065_01/index.htm
If you do not have an Oracle VM Manager configured to manage the Oracle VM Server, you will need to install the Oracle VM Manager.
For instructions for installing the Oracle VM Manager, see the Oracle VM Manager Installation Guide at: http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E20065_01/index.htm
If you have an Oracle VM Manager configured to manage the Oracle VM Server, proceed to Post Installation Tasks for Oracle VM.
