In the BIOS Setup utility, you can set optimal defaults, as well as view and edit BIOS settings as needed. Any changes you make in the BIOS Setup utility (through F2) are permanent until the next time you change them.
Note - If you are installing Oracle VM for the first time, and have not changed the BIOS defaults, you do not need to perform this procedure.
In addition to using F2 to view or edit the system BIOS settings, you can use F8 during the BIOS startup to specify a temporary boot device. If you use F8 to set a temporary boot device, this change is in effect only for the current system boot. The permanent boot device specified through F2 will be in effect after booting from the temporary boot device.
Caution - This procedure resets the BIOS settings to the default values, and overwrites any previously customized settings. To retain customized settings, review each menu and make note of the customized values before performing this procedure.
Before You Begin
Before you begin, ensure that the following requirements are met:
The server is equipped with a hard drive (HDD).
The HDD or SDD is properly installed in the server. For instructions, see the Netra Blade X3-2B Service Manual.
A console connection is established to the server.
From the Oracle ILOM web interface, click Host Management > Power Control, and then from the Select Action list box, select Reset.
From the local server, press the Power button (approximately one second) on the front panel of the server to power off the server, and then press the Power button again to power on the server. The BIOS screen is displayed.
After a few moments, the BIOS Setup utility is displayed.
The Netra Blade X3-2B also has a UEFI BIOS option, but Oracle VM does not currently support UEFI BIOS.
See the Netra Blade X3-2B Administration Guide for more information about UEFI BIOS.
A message is displayed prompting you to continue this operation by selecting OK or to cancel this operation by selecting CANCEL.
The BIOS Setup Utility screen is displayed with the first value in the system time field highlighted.

The Boot Settings menu is displayed.
The Boot Device Priority menu is displayed listing the order of the known bootable devices. The first device in the list has the highest boot priority.
The device strings listed on the Boot menu and Options menu are in the format of: device type, slot indicator, and product ID string.
Note - You can change the boot order for other devices in the list by repeating Steps 7a and 7b for each device entry you want to change.
Note - When you are using the ILOM Remote Console, F10 is trapped by the local OS. You must use the F10 option listed in the Keyboard menu that is available at the top of the console.
