Re: 2500r boot

You will need to use a smartstart cd to boot from, failing that you will need download and use the system configuration diskettes from this link (5 disks) http://h18023.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/locate/20_1113.html this setup up the server in the nvram. In here you can set boot order etc...
