Use the Oracle System Assistant Configuration setting in the BIOS Setup Utility Boot menu to disable or enable Oracle System Assistant.

Disabling Oracle System Assistant makes it unbootable and prevents the host operating system from accessing the files on the USB drive. This might be desirable for security reasons.

To enable or disable the Oracle System Assistant USB device:

  1. Access the server BIOS Setup Utility.

    See Access the BIOS Setup Utility Menus.

  2. Navigate to the Boot screen.

  5. To save and exit the BIOS utility, press F10.

    The server boots.
