biosconfig provides two commands to manage individual CMOS settings:
Gets CMOS settings from the platform.
Sets CMOS settings on the platform.
To use these commands:
Use -get_bios_settings filename.xml to generate an XML file that describes the current settings.
Edit that XML file to change the settings.
Use set_bios_settings filename.xml to apply the settings to CMOS.
You can provide a subset of the XML file to include only the settings that you want to change with the –get_bios_settings command. The XML file must be valid, so you must remove entire option sets from the XML file.
The names in the output XML file match the names in the setup menus; the only difference is that the spaces are replaced with underscores (_). For example, the Quick Boot entry in the Boot Settings Configuration submenu in the Boot menu of BIOS setup is specified like this:
<BIOSCONFIG> <SETUP_CONFIG> <Boot> <Boot_Settings_Configuration> <Quick_Boot>
