Re: ML530 G1 Server


G1 servers uses the SCU (System Configuration Utility) software to access the BIOS. SCU present on system partition only if you installed your Proliant with SmartStart CD (Version 5.50 for g1 servers)

You can create the SCU diskettes and boot from disk #1 to access the BIOS setup.

or you can boot from SmartStart 5.50 CD

Re: ML530 G1 Server

The G1 servers do not have an embedded application to access the BIOS configuration. It was installed on a system partition, that almost everybody has erased by now.
You can access the System Configuration Utility booting with SmartStart 5.5 CD or with 4 diskettes.

SmartStart 5.5 here:

System Configuration Utility in diskettes here:

By the way, Ubuntu is not supported on Proliant servers, good luck.
