However when I try to boot my T from this drive, I can bring up the temporary boot menu and see the usb drive in the list, but when I select it press enter the screen just flashes and comes back to the temporary boot menu.
IT will not accept my memory stick! Interestingly I also have a X here and this behaves exactly the same. What can I do. Enable CSM support.

This helped me too. Thing is, i already prepared the stick FAT32and enabled the secure boot. Are there any other things i need to change in order to boot from the USB? Forum Home. Community Guidelines Please review our Guidelines before posting.

Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It only takes a minute to sign up. When I try to boot, I get the following screen:.
Then it auto-selects F1 and either prints about once a second forever, or it sits with a blinking cursor doing nothing. I too have been trying to install free nas but on a Dell R server and have exactly the same problem with it not booting from the usb stick. I have managed to install it to a internal Hdd via a free nas live CD. Free nas doesn't recommend this as you lose storage hard drive space. My machines were bought around March It sounds like it's still a BIOS issue.
One thing you may want to do is to disable the SATA and other disk related settings in the bios. From memory I recall the device not being recognised if disks were set to auto detect.

Darren Darren 11 1 1 bronze badge. I'm trying to avoid installing the OS on a hard disk for the same reason. This does not really answer the question. If you have a different question, you can ask it by clicking Ask Question.
You can also add a bounty to draw more attention to this question once you have enough reputation. This counts as 'some other way'. And even if this allowed me to boot, it's not a viable solution as I am trying to use the USB stick as the permanent boot device, so I need to be able to actually mount my hard disks after booting from USB.
In older bioses sorry, I don't have the R next to me at the moment there was an option to set usb to Legacy mode. I'm sure you've experimented with all the options but sometimes it's listed under a not-so-obvious setting.
Here is a report of a similar situation: forums. I've gone through all the menus probably ten times by now : I'm hoping someone will point out some very non-obvious magic incantation for this particular machine to get that option to show up. The steps are below.This is a fine solution except for the fact that the ISO of Server is 6. Problem with this is that you will need to install a trial 30 day license of the paid iDrac product which Dell had to send to me during our support session.
If this info was useful please help us out and pop a LIKE by simply clicking the button below. If your doing the iDrac option be aware that the process is extremely slow. Hopefully, you can go the DVD route or Rufus, or perhaps by the time your reading this there is a new BIOS version out there and can avoid this headache. So not looking forward to calling Dell in the morning.
Thanks for letting me vent. I even got a call back from a manager who wanted to get more info and I lit into him as well. Worked for me. So I have a multi-thousand dollar brick for now…. Dell Bites for doing this to us.
Trying to boot from a USB on a Dell PowerEdge T110-II
I had to use the virtual drive method through the remote java console. Clown shoes only begins to describe a company that would release a server without the capability of having an OS installed via USB. We had the same issue back in April on a R I was in Phoenix for a 3 day install of a new server at a branch office. We tried every media we had, even drove to a few different stores to find double density disks. Finally realized we could do this via virtual media in the console of the iDrac. It was at this point I discovered the server was ordered with a Basic license instead of Enterprise as is our standard.
We got Dell to provide a 30 day Enterprise license which allowed the use of the virtual media. The whole process sucked up the whole afternoon, evening of the first travel day. Another 2 hour support call initiated. Eventually we got the whole project completed in the 3 days but were working a lot later than expected and missed out going to Top Golf one night!
I have not tried this so please, if someone can confirm this works let me know and I will adjust my post to include these instructions. Your step by step guide works just like magic.This computer's hardware may not support booting to this disk.
Ensure that the disk's controller is enabled in the computer's BIOS menu. I called Dell but so far that has proved fruitless. I'm betting I get more help from my Spiceworks team!
Rufus will do the rest. It should look like this:. Are they connected to a RAID controller? If so, you'll need to load that driver - not the one for the HDDs.
I couldn't use the Life Cycle Controller, but using the boot manager everything worked as it should! I have followed the Best Answer and yeah I got past the windows cannot install to this disk error, but on reboot it won't find the newly done OS. I have run into a proble with setting up the USB stick to boot from it. I thought I would throw my experience out in case it helps anyone who is also having issues. I have a Poweredge T on which I was trying to install Server I tried everything to get it to install to no avail.
I tried Rufus and it still failed. After a couple of days and many hours later, I prayed about it and quickly ran across someone at Experts Exchange that had sage advice. He said it was the USB stick itself causing his problems. He tried a different brand stick and it worked fine. So I did some testing. The iDRAC saw the 2. Server is installing as I write. Also, Rufus has changed a lot since Big Green Man posted his screenshot.

I have a T with 4 USB slots 2 front, 2rear.
The front 2 usb slots are occasionally used for keyboard and mouse, rear 2 are unused but working. The manuals suggest that the T is capable of booting from a USB key. My BIOS version is 1.
Can the T be configured to boot from a USB flash drive and if so now? The T also has 2 internal USB slots as well. They're on the motherboard next to the bank of dimms. If you have a viable bootable USB flash drive inserted in the server during startup then it should list in the boot order under the F11 boot menu, as well in the BIOS boot order. From your description, my expectation is incorrect, though the inconsistency in behaviour is puzzling.
