Install screen hangs or keyboard does not respond when booting off a USB drive to install SGME 5.x on Blue Coat Director.


When installing Director 5.x from a USB drive, if the keyboard becomes unresponsive and it looks like the installation is "hanging", please make sure that the Director console is connected using a direct serial cable. There are known issues with using converters such as USB-Serial or Bluetooth-Serial converters with a serial cable that causes the install to become unreponsive. Blue Coat strongly recommends using a direct serial cable connected to a computer that has a serial port.
