Before You Begin
Perform the steps in the section, Preparing to Install the OS.
While configuring an operating system for a networked server, it is necessary to provide the logical names (assigned by the OS) and the physical name (MAC address) of each network interface. See Identifying Logical and Physical Network Interface Names for Linux OS Configuration for details.
OEM OS installation guide available with the media kit.
These are the OS-specific drivers and supplemental software (tools) for the server. For information about the 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 Solaris OS), it will appear as a partition during the installation process. If you choose to install SLES on that partition, it will overwrite the OS. If you wish to preserve the partition, you must install SLES on a different partition.
