How to Create Minimal Boot Media For UEFI System for Red Hat Enterprise Linux

Solution Unverified - Updated -


  • Using the provided downloadable (other than full DVD ISO) install media, UEFI installation fails
  • The install process is:
    • Go to Red Hat and download installation ISO (net install, minimal boot disk, full install disk - whatever).
    • Go to IBM AMM and remote console to blade and mount the ISO as the CDROM drive for that blade.
    • Allow ISO to begin boot process, but specify networking and other settings with the kickstart file location.
    • Kickstart takes over and blade installs from the satellite server cobbler profile.
