Using bootable media

You can use the Menu program to select the tools to include with Lenovo Bootable Media Creator bootable media, such as Dynamic System Analysis or UpdateXpress System Pack Installer.

The Menu program can be run from the graphical user interface or from the text user interface.

  1. Select one of the following options:
    • To use the bootable ISO image, you must burn the ISO image onto a CD or DVD or mount the ISO image to a server using the virtual media function in BladeCenter Advanced Management Module (AMM), Integrated Management Module (IMM), or Remote Supervisor Adapter (RSA) II card, or another equivalent function.
    • To use the bootable PXE files, complete these steps:
      1. Copy the files in the Preboot Execution Environment (PXE) created directory (grub.cfg, img3a, img2a, LiveOS/squashfs.img, pxelinux.0, bsb1.lss, bsb.msg and to the content directory on the Trivial File Transport Protocol (TFTP) server.
      2. Configure the PXE boot server to use pxelinux.0 as the boot file.
      3. Verify the PXE boot server and TFTP boot server are up and running.
  2. Optional: If the device you want to boot from is not first or second in the boot order, press F12 to select a device.
  3. If the --autorun option was not specified when the bootable media was created, from the Menu, select a tool to manually start.
    When the selected tool is ready, the Menu for the graphic user interface or interactive text-user interface is displayed.
  4. Click Exit to close the Menu program.
    The targeted system shuts down if it is PXE booting or performing an unattended update, otherwise it reboots.
