Avaya Virtual Platform - USB Boot w/Kickstart File Modification

Avaya Virtual Platform - USB Boot w/Kickstart File Modification

(OP)
I'm using 2 USB bootable drives to install AVP, as I don't have a USB DVD drive. Do I need to modify the kickstart.cfg file to tell the system to boot from a USB rather than a DVD?

RE: Avaya Virtual Platform - USB Boot w/Kickstart File Modification

Just plug in the USB drive and put the AVP cd in the server. Boot the server and AVP will install. When the cd ejects, remove the USB drive.

Thank you phoneguy55, but I have no dvd drive. Many Business Partners are doing this process using 2 USB drives with no DVD drive in sight.

RE: Avaya Virtual Platform - USB Boot w/Kickstart File Modification

Ah, I see. haven't tried that. All my installs involve a dvd drive. I would assume there is a bios setting in the server to boot from USB. Is this a dell server? https://qrl.dell.com/Files/en-us/html/Manuals/R640...

I'm with you, as this is new to me on the USB installs. This is an S8300E in the G450.
