Evidently your bios is not configured correctly. Get a copy of the user's mannual, from the mfgr., for proper set-up.

Yep the solution to this for me was to make sure the secondary power supply was plugged in. Look at the screen before you hit F1 and see what errors are on the screen the computer thinks is important enough that it thinks you need to see prior to booting.

Check your Hardware configuration.  This usually happens when you tell the system BIOS that you have for example, a second floppy or Hard Drive, when you do not.  So it stops and asks you what to do next.


Hope that helps.

Selecting booting device

Normally with the new laptops you have to press F2 to access your bios settings, you will definitely be able to select the boot device from there.

If F2 does not work startup your laptop and watch the screen, there must be an option that will tell you which key to press to enter bios.

If the screen comes and goes to fast for you, press the pause button on your keyboard so you can read it at your own time and do your actual selection.

Hope it helps.

The Bios Settings need to be changed to boot from The ATAPI drive. When you turn on computer press the F2 or F1 or Delete button, sometimes its F10. Once you are in the bios setting look for boot devices. Follow the on screen instructions to change the boot order. I hope this helps.

SCSI Devices not detected when posting ML530 Server.....


To get to the BIOS for your server, press F10 at start-up. This should get you there to verify if settings are detecting SCSI devices. If they are there, you may have to reinstall the SCSI controller drivers. Good Luck.
