Verify BIOS Factory Default Settings

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.

  1. Reset or power on 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.

  2. When prompted, press the F2 key to access the BIOS Setup Utility.
  3. To ensure that the factory defaults are set, do the following:
    1. Press the F9 key to automatically load the optimal factory default settings.

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

    2. In the message, highlight OK, and then press Enter.

      The BIOS Setup Utility screen appears with the cursor highlighting the first value on the screen.

  4. Press the F10 key to save the changes and exit the BIOS Setup Utility.

    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.
