Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

      Hey guys, I have an old Poweredge 2650 sitting around my house, I have wanted to use it as a home server for awhile now but I cant figure out for the life of me how to install an OS on this thing. I have already setup a raid config in it but just dont know how to install an os. Any advice? If forgot to give any info please let me know!

You should be able to just insert the install media and it should detect it, what happens when you boot it without the OS?
