Microsoft Windows Server 2003 (64-bit)

Dear Support Team,

Now I have one HP RX7640 server which was installed Suse Linux Enterprise for along time, and now I want to reinstall it with new OS "Microsoft Window Server 2003 Enterprise" for other purpose. I get some issue when trying to reinstall it

1. I connect to the server with ILO interface and try to change the order booting as DVD device and reboot it

The message is dislayed "Load of Optiarc DVD  failed: Not Found"

I can not continue do next step

This is a question that is best answered by Hewlet Packard Enterprise, not HP Inc. 🙂 We don't make that product so the knowledge wont be here, sadly.


This should help. 🙂
