Ok, so I may need to be schooled on either ISO files or something. Here's what I'm doing.
1. I downloaded Windows Server 2003 from our MSDN site
2. also made note of the key
3. downloaded file is an .iso file
4. burned said .iso file to disc
5. booted Dell server using OpenManage software, enter all pertinent info (organization, domain info, product key, etc.)
6. then it asks for the Windows disc and when I enter the disc, it rejects it.
Was I suppose to do something else with the .iso file besides burning it to disc? Normally I just use the CD that came with the MSDN pack but it's no where to be found, which is why I had to download it. What the hell am I missing?
ok, I used Roxio to burn the ISO file to a CD and it does just has the iso file on it. What should I see on the disc once done properly? I'd try it right now but I'm out of CD-R's...looks like I'll be putting in a few hrs tomorrow.
Ok, when using Roxio (I have Easy Media Creator 9) to burn an iso, you need to click the Copy option on the left, then click "Burn Image to Disc" in the right pane. Click browse to locate the iso file, then click Add. When you are ready to burn the image, click the red button in the bottom right.
