To enable the Oracle System Assistant USB device and place it in an online state (accessible, available to the OS, and boot capable), use the Configure OSA setting in the server BIOS Setup Utility Boot menu.
You can also use the server BIOS Setup Utility to disable the USB device, which places it in an offline state, so it is unavailable to the server OS and not bootable. This protects the device from accidental erasure and overwrite. However, when the device is offline, it is not bootable, and the tools, drivers, and files that reside on the Oracle System Assistant device are inaccessible. You can also disable (but not enable) the device from within Oracle System Assistant (see Disable Oracle System Assistant Using the UI).
Use this procedure to enable (or disable) the Oracle System Assistant USB device from the BIOS Setup Utility.
The server boots.
