Methods for Changing the Boot List

    The boot list can be changed in any of the following ways:

  • Change the order in BIOS setup utility.

  • Reorder the categories using the IPMI bootflags that the SP offers to the compatible BIOS during POST. The default priority order for categories is CD/DVD, disk, removable, and network.

  • Change the boot order using biosconfig. This manipulates the contents of CMOS and the BIOS boot block structures stored in NVRAM, which is a dedicated part of the BIOS ROM.

    This chapter contains instructions for changing the boot order using biosconfig.

    Note - This boot list changes dynamically when devices such as disk drives, USB devices, and PCIe cards are installed and removed. The boot list also changes when javaConsole floppy and CD redirection is started and stopped.
