In the BIOS Setup Utility, you return the BIOS settings to the optimal factory default values, as well as view and edit settings as needed. Any changes that you make in the BIOS Setup Utility (using the F2 key) persist until the next time you change the settings.
Before you begin, ensure that the following requirements are met:
A hard disk drive or solid state drive is properly installed in the server.
A console connection is established to the server.
From the local server, press the Power button on the front panel of the server to power off the server, and then press the Power button again to power on the server.
From the Oracle ILOM web interface, click Host Management → Power Control and select Reset from the Select Action list.
From the Oracle ILOM CLI, type reset /System
The server resets.
A message appears prompting you to continue this operation by selecting OK or to cancel the operation by selecting Cancel.
The BIOS Setup Utility screen appears with the cursor highlighting the first value on the screen.
Alternatively, you can save the changes and exit the BIOS Setup Utility by navigating to the Save & Exit Menu and selecting Save Changes and Reset.
