You can boot with an "xp" bot disk, dos (any version) or any other os but that is not keepiing you ooout of the bios...just hit "f10" when prompted and you will be in the config....f8 gets you into the ilo setup you will ned to download the array drivers ( and expand the file to a floppy) to add it to windows 2000 or w2k server during the install as well

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 support.hp.com, select your location, then search on your model.

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.

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


Hello,

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

Upon reccomendation from a Microsoft tech and Acer, I have downloaded the current version of Bios update form my M5641, but have no istructions on how to perform the update. Please help


Ok, you must make a bootable DOS floppy diskette, or a bootable DOS CDrom if the machine has no floppy drive. You can download Windows executable DOS boot disk images here: http:bootdisk.com. I prefer DRDOS 7. There is usually a flashing utility and bios image file that you must copy to the floppy boot disk.

If your not very DOSSY, after the machine boots from the boot disk, you do a DIR, and find the name of the flashing utility. You enter that name at the command prompt: A:/. like this:

A:/flash_utility /h

That will give you help on how to use the utility.
But newer machines have smart bios that only need one file put on the boot disk, and everything is automatic.

Making a bootable CDrom requires special software that you must buy. Or you can use a Knoppix live CD, but you'll need one CD writer and one CDrom. It's ok if both are writers, or even if one is a DVD drive.

Bootdisk.com has bootable CDrom image files. But I only know how to get files inside the image file using Linux. There are programs for Windows that can edit a CD image file. Google 'edit .iso file. And don't pay money. There are good freeware programs. One is called daemontools.

You must copy the bios file(s) to the CD image, and burn the CD. Then boot with it, and do like I described above.

Reset bios without running hard disk first


2 options:

  1. create a bootable cd with the bios rom file, and a dos based flash utility (included with bios download). Boot to cd and flash.
  2. Connect a usb floppy drive and create bootable floppy. Copy rom file and flash utility to floppy, boot to floppy and flash......option 2 may be easier if you are not familiar with creating bootable cd's.......Let me know if this helps or not.

Do I really need a floppy disk to do an upgrade bios? I don't have a floppy disk, can I use a cd rom?


The real question is why and truly if you need to upgrade your BIOS. You should avoid unless you have a specific reason to do so. Secondly you can use alternate methods to upgrade such as a bootable CD, which you can use several programs to create. UltraISO is one and a free trial is available.. The resulting disk will start on boot the same as the OS disk would self start. You should also check your Boot sequence to ensure the read of the bootable CD as priority 1. The bios update needs to occur in Dos, rather than through Windows. Look here for exact instructions fron ASUS:
http://support.asus.com/technicaldocuments/technicaldocuments.aspx?root=198&SLanguage=en-us
And look here for Bios update files:

Installation


You need to use floppy disks (called boot disks) to boot DOS with cd-rom drivers, because the win98 cd isn't bootable by default.

I suggest you to go to http://www.bootdisk.com/bootdisk.htm and grab the respective windows 98 boot disk.

You will need a functional computer to write the disk image into the floppy.

After that put the boot order in BIOS as floppy first.

Once you see DOS prompt A:\> just access your cd-rom drive like d: or e: and then type install
