    The situation:
    Dell PowerEdge SC1440
    Server has been set up using Open Manage Build Utility (as it has SCSI Hard
    Disk drivers built in).
    Configured to use MS Windows SBS 2003 R2.

    I'm using an Action Pack DVD that contains all the SBS 2003 files.

    System keeps asking for the CD1 of SBS 2003 when I provide the DVD that has
    all the SBS install files.

    Anyone seen this before?

  2. The message is pretty clear...the openmanage utility won't utilize your
    action pack DVD. it wants CDs
    So if you want to install from Action Pack you'll have to boot from the DVD
    and do your install without OpenManage and then supply drivers for SCSI
    using F6 option

  3. I haven't tried it, but can't you extract ISOs and burn CDs of each from the
    DVD?
