How do i boot a compaq proliant dl380 with a usb drive set up for booting?


Make sure you have turned on the USB Boot in the BIOS of the os. Once this is done, select the order you would like for the server to locate boot files. (Hard Drive, USB, CD/DVD, etc.) Once complete, insert the USB and reboot the server.

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.

Need bootable floppy program for my compaq proliant DL380

If i remember correctly, The Compaq ProLiant doesn't have a boot time BIOS configuration system. You can't hit F2 or F10 or DEL on boot to get to the BIOS. Instead, you have to use DOS/Windows programs for BIOS configuration. You will need the smartstart (anywhere from 350MB to 600MB download) and firmware maintenance CDs (somewhere around 350MB) for your model of Proliant. You can download it from HP. Just start at, select your location, then search on your model.
