HP RX5670 EFI Boot Menu

I have a problem on my rx5670 machine, when i restored the configuration to default, the internal DVD drive is not available on the EFI Boot Menu, only EFI Shell and Confiration menus are available, i tried to run the command reconnect -r and map -r but still unsuccessful. Please help because i need to boot from CD.

Somewhere in the rom-based configuration utility (advanced section?) there is a switch to enable/disable the IDE adapter.
Enable it and reset system, it should detect the dvd, you may also have to configure the boot menu using explore.

Hi Phil,

The DVD Drive of RX5670 is connected to a 50pin SCSI Bus.

It *could* be a problem with the drives firmware. Did you try to cycle power?

Hope this helps!

Re: HP RX5670 EFI Boot Menu

can you get into the scsi config before efi is loaded?
(hit F8 or something else?)

What happens when you enter "info io", or "devtree", or "map" in the efi shell?
