DL380 P17 BIOS

I can't seem to access the BIOS - at all!
There is no prompt for an F key, I've tried all (?) of them during boot. I can't find much doco in support.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Hi Brad,
Your dl380 (P17) thats the 667-1000 mhz model I do believe. To access your bios their is an option (F10) when posting to access the Compaq System configuration utility, if install previously. If not install previously you run it with the smart start or you will have the option of running it form floppy. You cannot install the System configuration utility after the OS is install.

Re: DL380 P17 BIOS

Do you have a Smart Start CD? You can boot off the this CD and run the System Configuration Utility from there.

The SCU can also be run by booting off the floppies for this, available at:

The truth is out there, but I forgot the URL..

Re: DL380 P17 BIOS

I have ran the SCU, but it's not the same as the BIOS setup. Is it? Can you set the boot order in the SCU? Can you set which SCSI adapters are seleted to boot from and what order?

Thanks again.

Re: DL380 P17 BIOS

This is the original DL380. There is no BIOS available for what you need. This will require running the system config utility.

Yes you can change the boot controller order in the SCU.
