Introduction to Windows Installation

This section provides instructions for tasks you must complete before you begin installing the Windows Server 2008 R2 64-bit operating system onto a Sun Blade X6275 M2 server module.

Note - The Sun Blade X6275 M2 server module consists of two nodes, each with its own service processor (SP), and each capable of supporting its own operating system. These nodes are fully independent of each other, and must be managed as if they were separate servers. Therefore, for each server module, you must perform a separate operating system installation on each node.

This section includes the following topics:

Experienced users: Manually install Windows on your server.
Advanced users: Create a Windows image file for your server to be use with Windows Deployment Services.
Post installation: Install server-specific drivers and supplemental software.
