Installing the operating system

Use these instructions to install the operating system on the blade server.

To install the operating system on a blade server, you can use any of the following methods:
  • Use the ServerGuide Setup and Installation CD to install a supported MicrosoftWindows operating system.
  • Download the latest operating-system installation instructions and install the operating system.

Important: The operating system in the blade server must provide USB support for the blade server to recognize and use the keyboard, mouse, and removable-media drives. The BladeCenter unit uses USB for internal communication with these devices.
