installing winserver from cdrom.iso

Before posting something, READ the changelog, WATCH the videos, howto and provide following:
Your install is: Bare metal, ESXi, what CPU model, RAM, HD, what EVE version you have, output of the uname -a and any other info that might help us faster.

installing winserver from cdrom.iso

Post by timb » Tue Jan 19, 2021 1:10 am

Hi,

The server posts, but does not see the cdrom.iso as bootable so it starts trying to PXE boot. I have followed the guide several times. There is no mention if this iso gets mounted somewhere or not? I have tried both Server 2012 and 2019 iso's. I am not using the Pro version yet as I am testing it out, but I think I have to get those docker containers happening. :D

EVE is running on an ESXi host. The error is: Could not read from CDROM (code 0003)

I have tried several QEMU versions.

Thanks,

timb

I figured it out. The filename extension was all caps. cdrom.ISO. Changed it to lower case and we are good.
