The 1325 should already be setup properly as the board is custom to the
chassis and that the only way the system is sold.. Also the CD is self
booting and doesn't require windows to setup anyway. You have to flash
the BMC and set it up that way and configure the password for acces via
the bootable CD. This will also install the "Service Partition"
