Issue Description
The ServiceCD fails to guide the operating system installation which stops at ISOLINUX. The cursor flashes, as shown in the following information:
ISOLINUX 3.73 3.73 ETCD Copyright (C) 1994-2008 H. Peter Anvin
Alarm Information
none
Handling Process
Restore the BIOS settings to the default settings and disable the BMC WDT function.
Advanced > IPMI 2.0 Configuration
Root Cause
After the PXE Option ROM is implemented, OptionROM changes the mode in which the CPU accesses the memory. As a result, the ServiceCD cannot run when being mounted.
Suggestions
  1. Modify the BIOS/BMC settings with cautions.
  2. In case of similar problems, it is recommended to check the software configurations first and then the hardware.
  3. This situation is applied to hardware configurations of the RH2285, E6000, and RH1285 servers
