Install a Linux server through LAN


Hello Mildred,

I have read your concern regarding Linux installation via LAN. As what I’ve understood, you were asking for a guide on how to do it without internet connection at all. Is it right?

Here are the little points regarding the installation process. A few things needed to do this:

Must work on a PC (network boot-compatible)

Ethernet Cable

Available Network PC

Basic Understanding on Computers

Vacant Time (an hour or two)

These are the steps you need to follow to accomplish the installation process.

– Make sure that you connect the local network with an Ethernet cable.

– Turn the server ON and change boot order of devices. To successfully change a setting, you must press “F” during start-up to enable in changing settings on BIOS. Please put in mind that newer versions may have change the keys for this matter.

– Look for “NETWORK BOOT” or any related words if not found.

– A new window or installation instructions will appear and follow it until finished.

I hope I am in the right track of understanding your concern and give you a hand to fix the problem. I hope this information is of good help.

Good Luck!
