Thanks for the answer Nathan. I'm glad to hear it. At present I tried to
start boot it from CD/DVD and fail with message "AA060011, /No OS
image/ was /detected by firmware/. " ISOs I got from
for both of it the error was same - is it normal or I did something wrong?
I'll try to give you access to the HMC if you can give me a link to DOCs
"how to setup it" or explain it shortly.
