Before You Begin

Ensure that you have console access with a keyboard to perform this task.

  1. Access the BIOS Setup Utility.
    1. Boot the system.

      Boot messages scroll across the console screen.

    2. Press the F2 key (or Ctrl +E from a serial terminal) continuously.

      The BIOS Setup Utility main screen appears.

  2. Select the slot number where you want to move a device.

    For example, if you want to move a device to the second slot, select the second item in the list.

    A dialog box appears.

  3. In the dialog box, select the device that you want to go into the slot you selected in Step 2 and then press Enter.

    The dialog box disappears. The device you selected is moved into the indicated slot, and BIOS reorders the rest of the list to accommodate the change.

  4. Press F10 to save your changes.

    The utility prompts you to save your changes or discard your changes and exit.
