With this method, you deliver the Oracle VM distribution media on either a local or remote CD/DVD drive, USB device, or CD/DVD image. You also need to install any necessary drivers. The drivers for your server are available on the server's internal Oracle System Assistant USB flash drive (which must be installed for the drivers to be accessible) and from the My Oracle Support web site as either OS-specific and server-specific packages or as an ISO image file. To install Oracle VM, use the distribution media's installation wizard.
