Setting console on a rx2600

I have some trouble setting the correct console on a rx26000 Itanium server. There is a VGA display (hp1825) and a USB keyboard connected to it and I would like to use those as the console (so doing ctrl B, seeing the flow of all POST and other messages, ....). This does not work although I thought I selected the correct input, output and standard error devices :

Output & Error = Acpi(HWP0002,700)/Pci(2|0)
Input = Apci(HWP0002,0)/Pci(1|1)

Should everything be deconnected from the management card and the serial ports or is there another problem ?

Thanks,
Bruno

Bruno,

The POST messages cannot be seen from the VGA screen. VGA BIOS is initialized at the end of POST (after a minute or so).
So you do not do anything wrong, POST messages can only be viewed from the console port.

when you see the 10seconds disconnect ,you can disturb it,and choose the boot path,then you can use "boot -vga",so youcan see it.
try !
luck!
