Navigate BIOS Setup Utility Menus

To navigate the menus or options listed on a menu, use the arrow keys. The currently selected option or sub-menu is highlighted. For further instructions on how to navigate and change settings in the BIOS Setup Utility, refer to the online information provided on the menu.

  1. Access the BIOS Setup Utility.

    See Access BIOS Setup Utility Menus.

  2. Use the left and right arrow keys to select the different primary menu options.

    As you select each menu option, the top-level screen for that menu option appears.

  3. To navigate options presented on a top-level screen, use the up and down arrow keys.

    Only options that can be modified are highlighted when you press the up and down arrow keys.

    • If an option can be modified, as you select the option, user instructions for modifying the option appear in the right column of the screen.
    • If an option is a link to a sub-screen, a description of the sub-menu content appears in the right column.
  4. Modify an option by pressing the + or - (plus or minus) keys or by pressing Enter and selecting the desired option from the pop-up menus.
  5. Press the Esc key to return from a sub-menu screen to the previous menu screen.

    Pressing Esc from a top-level menu is equivalent to selecting the Discard Changes and Exit option from the Save & Exit Menu.

  6. Modify parameters as needed.
  7. Press the F10 key to save your changes and exit the BIOS Setup Utility.

    Note -  After modifying any BIOS settings, the subsequent reboot might take longer than a typical reboot where no settings were modified. The additional delay is required to ensure that changes to the BIOS settings are synchronized with Oracle ILOM.
