Use this procedure to install the Oracle Linux OS without the use of Oracle System Assistant.
Before You Begin
Perform the steps in the section Preparing to Install the OS.
To complete this installation, you need the following Linux installation articles:
For Linux 5, go to: http://www.oracle-base.com/articles/linux/OracleEnterpriseLinux5Installation.php
For Linux 6, go to: http://www.oracle-base.com/articles/linux/OracleLinux6Installation.php
These are the OS-specific drivers and supplemental software (tools) for the server. For information about the folder file system structure, refer to Netra Blade X3-2B Administration Guide.
BIOS messages appear on the console.
After a delay, a menu offers a selection of boot devices (see the following example).
To boot from a physical CD/DVD or from an ISO image, select CD/DVD.
Control passes to the OS installation program on the media.
Note - If you already have an operating system besides Linux installed (for example, the Oracle Solaris OS), it will appear as a partition during the installation process. If you choose to install Linux on that partition, it will overwrite the OS. If you wish to preserve the partition, you must install Linux on a different partition.
