Your server uses a Super P8SCi Motherboard, and according to the manual for your server on page 4-2, you can enter the bios of the computer by rapidly pressing the DELETE key when you first power on the server. This will take youto the bios setup screen. At the top, you'll see an option called boot. Use the arrows keys to navigate over to it, and change your first boot device to the CD-ROM Drive. Then SAVE AND EXIT, and it will now boot from any cd before looking to boot from the hard drive.

SOURCE: how to reset the bios password for nec versa

Restart the computer, and read the first message (white text on a black background), hoping that it says something like "press F1 to enter BIOS setup, press F12 to select boot priority".

If it does, press F12, and then select the CD-ROM device as the "bootable" device.

SOURCE: need to flash the bios

You cannot remove the password by flashing the bios. However, there are two possibilities that _might_ work, depending on how that particular model works:
1. Unplug the computer and remove the internal clock battery for a few hours at least - maybe overnight

2. Some motherboards have a "CMOS Reset" jumper on them that you can use to reset any password in the BIOS (and any other BIOS settings). It will probably be a two position jumper on the motherboard, usually somewhere near the clock battery. Put the jumper on the opposite position that it is in, power up the computer for about 30 seconds, power off the computer, then replace the jumper back to it's original spot. Then boot up the computer normally and you should be able to go into the BIOS

These two options don't apply to all systems, but probably most of them. IBMs are an exception because they store the BIOS passwords encrypted in a memory chip that doesn't require battery backup, so on them there is no way to reset the password. Hopefully yours is not like that and one of the solutions I gave will work.

X7DBI+ bios password


Hello here is the homepage:

http://www.supermicro.com/products/motherboard/xeon1333/5000P/X7DBE.cfm

Remove the cmos battery on the mainboard for like 15 min. and inset the battery again.

This will clear the bios and remove the password.

But you have to setup the bios clock, date, boot settings, when the pass is gone.

The cmos battery look like this:


1_12_2013_2_47_20_am.jpg

Please take antistatic precautions when working on the maniboard.

Good luck

Cant install server 2012


Hello download a manual from the homepage:

http://www.supermicro.com/products/motherboard/xeon3000/3210/x7sbe.cfm

Check the settings in the bios.

Try to reset the bios to factory default.
And setup basic boot settings for the drives.
First boot device: cd/dvd
Second: the harddrive.
Try installing with only one harddrive (you can always add more later)
Check also the cd/dvd drive for fault.

The Os server 2012 is supported.

Good luck

How i solve supermicro x8dt3-f display problem


Make sure JPG1 is jumpered between pins one and two.
Pin 1 is on the left.
JPG1 is on the very bottom of the motherboard, near the end of the PCI slot.
Next go to Advanced Setup Configuration if you can get any video, and check Boot Graphics Adapter Priority.
Make sure it is set to Onboard VGA.
If no video, reset the BIOS.
Onboard VGA is the default.

Hello here is the homepage:

http://www.supermicro.com/products/system/1u/5014/sys-5014c-mt.cfm

Try to reset the bios, by removing the cmos battery.
And insert it again.
This will clear the bios, to factory settings.
But you have to setup the bios again: date, clock, boot settings etc.
When you get it running again, try upgrading the drivers and bios to the latest version.

Hope this will help you.

How can i get rid of the compaq logo even after i format my hard drive .


The screen that I think you're referring to is the OEM BIOS splash screen.

This particular logo / image has nothing to do with your hard drive... it is embedded on a physical chip (EEPROM or ROMBIOS) on your motherboard.

It is possible to make modifications to this particular splash screen (through a hardware hack), but I don't recommend doing it. The screen shouldn't be a problem; it sounds like you might be experiencing a "Boot Order" issue.

I'm assuming you might be having problems with the Boot Order if you're having issues with loading your OS from CD. When you have the Windows CD in the CD ROM and you reboot the system, you should see the following message flash up on the screen (immediately following your OEM BIOS Splash screen):

"Press any Key to Boot from CD..."

If you don't see this message and your CD ROM Doesn't spin up and begin to load windows...you might have a Bad CD ROM, bad CD "Disc" or...you might not have your BIOS Boot Order set up correctly.

HOW TO FIX IT:

To get into the BIOS Setup on a Compaq Presario system, do the following:

When the OEM Logo Splash screen appears, press F1 to enter the BIOS Setup.
Note: On certain Compaq Presario PCs (prior to 2002) press the F10 key at the logo screen to enter setup.

To change the Boot order:

Here's the URL for Compaq's Online FAQ for Changing the Boot Order:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=bph07110&lc=en&cc=us&lang=tr&man_lang=en&product=1843681&dlc=tr#N1310

Try changing the Boot Device Priority in the BIOS Setup: Make sure that the "CD ROM" entry is moved "Before" the entry for the Hard Drive and Network PXE:

Example Boot Order:
  1. CD ROM or Removable Media
  2. USB
  3. Floppy (if you have one)
  4. Hard Drive
  5. PXE (Network Boot)
This should help you load the OS successfully from CD (if you're not being presented with the "Press any Key to Boot from CD..." notification when rebooting with the Windows CD in the CD/ROM drive.

Please repost if this fixed your problem and rate my response!

Good Luck,
