Re: BIOS ROM disaster

Hi there,


You can go to BIOS and run the backup ROM if your server model has that facility. or you can boot with firmware maintenance cd and restore the old bios.


If there is no display reset BIOS by flipping the switch (or shorting the jumper) on the board.


Usually this solves. Post back whatever the outcome is
