ML 150 G6 attmpting boot off External HDD

We have a number of clients who use ML 150 G6 and every single one of them have a random problem in that they sometimes attempt to boot from an external plugged in usb drive, even though in the BIOS, boot from external devices has been disabled. We go out to site, disable it and teh system runs fine for a few weeks and then the servers will somehow reenable booting from usb devices. We then have to travel onsite to these remote locations and do the same thing. This is not just one server but every G6 that we have installed.

The fixes section mentions nothing about fixing bios booting issues. I need to know that this has been addressed. The fact that almost every ML 150 G6 that we have installed has this problem is concerning.

Dave:

The only way you'll know for sure is to designate one server as a "BIOS Test" machine and install the 2011 BIOS. If it doesn't fix it and you want to revert to the old version, here's the link:
