You are right when you boot from IDE or sata cdrom.

Solution : Please use the USB external CDROM/DVDROM then you can restore the server without any problem.

I checked and its working .

Thank you ! Screen for your response !  we were able to find a workaround in our case we found the amd74xx driver was not loaded on boot via SRT CD .

we have a case open with symantec for a fix.

----- Problem:-------
BMR recovery process terminates after booting from the Physical CD with the following message; and drops to shell prompt "#"

ERROR: no device found /proc/sys/dev/cdrom/info


NOTE: The server is booting from the SRT Media CD but keeps complaining cdrom-info not found.

From the "#" follow the below steps; to continue the recovery process

# modprobe amd74xx

NOTE: Use "ifconfig -a" to identify active interface

# ifconfig eth0 down
# /etc/rc.stage1

Thank you !
