Unable to install Gentoo on server

I purchased a Dell PowerEdge 1950 to install Linux and learn. I used a USB 3.0 and made it bootable using imageusb and got the following error: "Isolinux.bin corrupt or missing error" when attempting to boot to the USB. The server recognized the device but shot that error. I then formatted the USB and tried using the DD command on another Linux machine and got the same error. I then proceeded to think maybe it was the USB, so I changed to an older USB 2.0 using imageusb, rufus and dd command in a Linux VM I have on my laptop. All came to the same error when trying to boot to it. I then thought maybe because the bios were outdated, so I updated the bios on the server. Still no success. I then went ahead and downloaded Nero and burned the iso image on dvd and tried booting it off the DVD. I got this: "Syslinux 3.86 EBIOS Copyright (C) 1994-2010 H> Peter Anvin et al" but still will not boot to the Gentoo.

I know they work because both USB's and the cd booted fine on another pc but this server will not boot to the live Gentoo. Any ideas as to why or any help would be greatly appreciated.

The wiki is not the place to ask support questions, particularly on a random, unrelated page. Please seek out standard methods like #gentoo on freenode IRC or using the Gentoo Forums. --Grknight (talk) 02:51, 6 February 2019 (UTC)
