Selecting the Installation Target

Before you boot the OS, select and prepare the installation target.

Installation Target Options

Depending on the operating system, you can install an OS on the optional NVMe storage drives or on any of the storage drives installed in the server. Hard disk drives (HDDs), solid state drives (SSDs), and RAID volumes are valid installation targets.

You can install these operating systems on NVMe drives:

  • Oracle Solaris

  • Oracle Linux

  • Oracle VM

  • Windows Server

For servers equipped with Fibre Channel PCIe host bus adapters (HBAs), you can install the operating system to an external fibre channel storage device.
