Before You Begin
You can use FCoE to boot an operating system only in legacy BIOS mode. Upgrades for Windows OS Release 16.2 are supported when FCoE Boot is enabled or when the Windows paging file is on an FCoE target. You must upgrade an FCoE-booted system only through the Intel PROSet for Windows Device Manager. A reboot is required to complete the upgrade.
After you press Ctrl-D, the Intel Ethernet FCoE Boot Port Selection menu is displayed.
This screen displays a list of Intel FCoE Boot-capable adapters. For each adapter port, the following fields are displayed:
Associated SAN MAC address
PCI device ID
PCI bus, device, and function location
FCoE Boot status
Up to 10 FCoE Boot-capable ports can be displayed within the Port Selection menu. If there are more Intel FCoE Boot-capable adapters, these are not listed in the Selection menu.
Discover Targets is highlighted by default. If the Discover VLAN value that is displayed is not correct, enter the correct value.
Note - Under Target WWPN, if you know the desired WWPN, you can manually enter it or press Enter to display a list of previously discovered targets.
The valid values for the boot order are 0-4. A 0 value means that no boot order is followed or that the target is ignored and that this port should not be used to connect to the target. Boot order values of 1-4 can only be assigned once to a target across all of the FCoE Boot enabled ports.The VLAN value is 0 by default. If the displayed VLAN is correct, you can enter the VLAN manually and execute the Discover Targets tool on that VLAN.
After the Discover Targets function is executed, the Option ROM attempts to remain logged into the fabric until the FCoE Boot Targets Configuration menu is exited.
