Using biosconfig


Caution - Do not use biosconfig to change BIOS settings that are not visible in the normal BIOS setup menu.

To use biosconfig, you must have a working knowledge of editing XML files. The process of editing the BIOS includes using biosconfig to do the following tasks:

  1. Run BIOSconfig to create an XML file.

  2. Review the XML file and modify it, if necessary, to configure the system to your specific needs.

  3. Write the XML file back to the system (or another system) using BIOSconfig.

The following sections describe how to execute a detailed configuration.

Note - In the output examples in this section, all white space outside the XML elements, such as indentation, is optional. For example, see output in How to Make a Persistent Change to Boot Order.

For installation instructions on Component Manager, see: Getting Started.
