Using the Boot Menu program
The Boot Menu program is a built in, menu-driven configuration program that you
can use to temporarily redefine the first startup device without changing settings in
the Configuration/Setup Utility program.
To use the Boot Menu program, complete the following steps:
1. Restart the server.
2. Press F12.
3. Select the startup device.
The next time the server is started, it returns to the startup sequence that is set in
the Configuration/Setup Utility program

What is 3-3-2 beep tone meaning


System doeIf there is one DIMM in the system the memory row/bank may be disabled when there is a memory failure. The system will not boot because it has no memory to use. If the DIMM is replaced with one of the exact same type and size, then the system will continue not to boot. BIOS cannot tell when a DIMM has been replaced with one of the exact type and size, therefore BIOS believes it is still the bad DIMM and will not use it.

Here are two possible workarounds:

1. After replacing the defective DIMM, continue to reboot the system until you hear the "no memory" post beep sequence (3-3-3) during POST (no video display). After three (3) incomplete boots, a "062 three consecutive boot failure. Using default CMOS configuration caches are off" error will occur. At this point BIOS will go back to the default settings and begin to use the new DIMM. However, if you have disabled the 3 boot fail count (this setting may not be available in all servers) in Setup, then BIOS will not turn the DIMM row/bank back on.
-=OR=

2. Remove the DIMM. Power on the system until the "no memory" post beep sequence (3-3-3) is heard. The memory row/bank will now be marked as being empty. Power off the system and put a good DIMM back into the system. The memory DIMM row/bank is re-enabled and the system boots normally.

NOTE: If more than one DIMM (or more than one DIMM set) is installed in the server and one memory (or one memory set) row/bank is disabled due to a memory failure then, the user must go into setup and re-enable the row/bank after replacing the bad DIMM.

In order to change the boot drive you have to change the boot settings in BIOS, or sometimes you can get a separate boot menu which allows you to change this setting on a one-off basis. During the boot sequence you need to press the "F12" button during the POST testing to bring up the boot menu if one is available, otherwise you need to press the "Del" or "F2" button during the POST process to bring up the Bios screens. Navigate to the BOOT option and alter the boot sequence, save the settings, exit BIOS and reboot.

HP DL160 g6 need to activate boot from DVD


Hi Fyamine,
While booting go into the BIOS, use either the dedicated keys or +/- to enable/disable the CD ROM boot ( in the Advanced section of device management), then go into the advanced boot tab and change the boot order (it should be CD->HDD->Pxe->Disabled by Default). After that, restart the server and wait for it to boot from the disk.

Proliant does not boot from raid controller if external SCSI drive is powered on.


Try to disable boot to other device on your bios setting.

Make sure that your Smart Raid is set on the first boot device.

Hi, I want to install an Ubuntu server edition on my HP proliant dl360 G3 series. This install is located on a USB-stick and I want to install it from there. How do I do this? Thanks in advance.


You firstly have to make your usb key bootable just google instructions on how to do that.
Set the boot order in the bios to boot from it and then transfer the image to the usb key and install from it.

DELL POWEREDGE 6400 IS NOT BOOTING FROM THE CD


Hello,

Go to your BIOS and change the boot sequence so that the system boots to the CD 1st. (You should see a tab or label that says Boot Order or Boot Device.)

Good Luck

Make sure the BIOS is fully updated from the HP website. Most DL3-series servers supported booting from an external USB cd, try F10 or F12 at boot in order to bring up a boot menu.

Usb cd boot


you need to set the boot device priority in the BIOS in such a way that the computer will take an external CD/DVD-drive as first boot device. to do this, you need to enable USB legacy support first, save and exit from the BIOS settings and then return to the BIOS to set the USB-CD/DVD-drive as primary boot device.
