HP BL460c G8 E5-2620 Option ROM Messages

Hello,

I have a HP BL460c G8 server, I want to access the Option ROM messages, which is normally done when the prompt "Press any key to view Option ROM messages" appears upon resetting the blade, as shown below.

However, this screen is not showing. Please advise.

 

Thank you for your help.

Are you sure the system is recognising the keyboard? What happens if you press F9 or F11?

The keys are working.

Actually, I am getting a different looking screen. Similar to the attached.

So I'm not offered to "Press any key to view Option ROM messages".

normally if you hit the esc key during that screen it will drop out of the graphics mode so you can see the ROMS loading in plain text mode. Another option is to go into RBSU and turn the grahic boot options off. I forget the exact wording in RBSU
