Hello,

USB support
HP provides both standard USB support and legacy USB support. Standard support is provided by the
operating system through the appropriate USB device drivers. HP provides support for USB devices prior
to the operating system loading through legacy USB support, which is enabled by default in the system
ROM. HP hardware supports USB version 2.0.
Legacy USB support provides USB functionality in environments where USB support is normally not
available. Specifically, HP provides legacy USB functionality at:
• POST
• RBSU
• Diagnostics
• DOS
• Environments which do not support USB natively

Hello, SanjeevGoyal!

In my case I'm eager to use usb boot prepared images written in UEFI mode.

So, if G5 platform supports at POST level only legacy mode, then we should use iso images prepared in legacy mode, right?

Thank you!
