I am trying to install Windows Server Standard 2012 on server. I click one time boot under system utilities screen and then on Boot screen I click on CD drive which I has Windows Server CD. But it loops back to system utilities screen again.

This is my first time installing Windows server 2012. I don't know how I can get to install it. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.

Please see attached pictures below for looping screens.

Try to go into the BIOS settings and changing the boot order making the drive bay the first boot option, if that didn't work, make sure you have the latest BIOS firmware from your provider also the secure boot (UFEI Boot option is enabled or allowed).


Hope this works for you!

revert the boot order if that solved your issue to how you found it.
