Booting through Hard Disk when CD is on diskette??


I forget to remove CD after I install RHEL on one of the machine in Data centre.Now Through Remote Console(ILO)when I tried rebooting the system, it again boots from CD left un-removed on CD Drive.

Is there any option where I can boot from HDisk not from CD instead of BIOS Setting?

No, booting order/options are controlled through BIOS. Either get someone to remove the CD, or go into BIOS, and change the boot-order.

Is it a standard consumer type burner? Look for a small hole on the front, take an unfolded paper clip, insert and push firmly. This releases the catch on the tray which you can pull out.
