Set BIOS Settings to Default Values

Note - If the server is newly installed and this is the first time that an OS is installed, then the BIOS is configured to its default settings. You do not have to perform this task.
  1. Ensure that these requirements are met:
    • A drive is properly installed in the server. Refer to Server Service.

    • A console connection is established to the server. For details, see Selecting the Console Display .

  2. Access the BIOS Setup utility.

    See Initiate a BIOS Operation.

  3. Press F9 to automatically load the optimized default settings.

    A message appears prompting you to continue this operation by selecting OK or to cancel this operation by selecting CANCEL.

  4. In the message, highlight OK then press Enter.

    The BIOS Setup utility screen appears with the cursor highlighting the first value in the System Time field.

  5. In the BIOS Setup utility, edit the values associated with the system time and date.
    1. Highlight the values you want to change.

      Use up or down arrow keys to change between the system time and date selection.

    2. Change the values in the highlighted fields using these keys:
      • + (plus) increments the current value shown.

      • - (minus) decrements the current value shown.

      • Enter moves the cursor to the next value field.

  6. Press F10 to save changes and exit the BIOS Setup utility.

    Note -  When using the Oracle ILOM remote console, F10 is trapped by the local OS. You must use the F10 option listed in the Keyboard drop-down menu that is available at the top of the Remote Console application.
