Re: boot on bl870c

You probably have to access the EFI configuration menu and add a boot menu item for the external DVD drive. Then return to the main boot menu and use the new menu item to boot from the Smart Setup media.

This should allow you to access the EFI Based Setup Utility (EBSU).

For instructions on how to use EBSU to configure RAID on your system disks, please see:

http://bizsupport2.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c01984699/c01984699.pdf

(The document is nominally for Windows Server 2008, but because it deals mostly with EFI-level configuration, it should be applicable to all operating systems on your hardware.)

No, but there is a smartsetup CD.

Is it a BL870c or BL870c i2?

This makes a difference, because of different RAID controllers.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.
