Hi,

you can do this when you clear NVRAM from the system maintenance switch on the system board.

When you open the server on the access panel should be a picture of the switch, location and 6 or 8 positions....normally you must set position 6 to on.

Thanks for the quick response. We ended up unplugging the server and removing the battery from the bios. Since we were rebuilding the server, losing all of the bios settings was acceptable.
