Dell Lifecycle Controller and iDRAC provide operating system deployment options. Options include manual installation or unattended installation by using virtual media and the operating system deployment feature in Lifecycle Controller for Windows Server 2016, Windows Server 2019, Windows Server 2022, and Azure Stack HCI operating system version 21H2 or 22H2.
A step-by-step procedure for deploying the operating system is not within the scope of this guide.
This guide assumes that:
- Windows Server 2016, Windows Server 2019, Windows Server 2022, or Azure Stack HCI operating system version 21H2 or 22H2 installation on the physical server is complete.
- You have access to the iDRAC virtual console of the physical server.
The Azure Stack HCI operating system is based on Server Core and does not have the full user interface. For more information about using the Server Configuration tool (Sconfig), see Deploy the Azure Stack HCI operating system
