Set Up the Boot Media for a Local Installation

To set up the local boot media, you must insert a storage device that contains the Windows Server OS installation media into the server using one of the following options.

  1. Obtain the Windows Server 2012 R2 OS installation media.

    Obtain the Windows Server installation media from http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/windowsserver/default.aspx.

  2. If the server is equipped with an optional DVD drive, insert the Windows Server OS installation DVD into the DVD drive located on the front of the server; otherwise, proceed to the next step.
  3. If your server does not have a DVD drive, insert an external USB DVD drive or a USB flash drive that contains the Windows Server OS installation media into one of the external USB ports located on the front and rear of the server.

    Note -  For information about the location of the server's external USB ports, refer to Server Features and Components in Oracle Server X6-2 Installation Guide.
