In the BIOS Setup Utility, you can set optimal defaults, and view and edit UEFI settings, as needed. By setting optimal defaults, you ensure that the server is operating efficiently with a configuration that is known to be good. In the BIOS Setup Utility, use the F2 key to set UEFI optimal defaults and view and edit UEFI settings. Review the optimal defaults in the Oracle Server X7-2 Service Manual.
Any changes you make in the BIOS Setup Utility using the F2 key are permanent until the next time you change them.
You can use F8 during the BIOS start up to specify a temporary boot device; however, this change is only in effect for the current system boot. The permanent boot device specified using F2 is in effect after booting from the temporary boot device.
Before you begin, ensure that the following requirements are met:
The hard disk drive (HDD) or solid state drive (SSD) is properly installed in the server. For instructions, refer to Servicing Storage Drives (CRU) in Oracle Server X7-2 Service Manual.
A console connection is established to the server. For details, see Selecting the Console Display.
For more information and detailed procedures, see Reset the BIOS Firmware to Default Settings (BIOS) in the Oracle X7 Series Servers Administration Guide at http://www.oracle.com/goto/x86admindiag/docs.
The BIOS Setup Utility screen appears.
Alternatively, select Save Changes and Exit from the Exit menu.
