ML530 Server, error on boot

Hi
I have a HP ML530 G1 server. On boot The following message appears:

Scanning for SCSI device ... no device found
press f1 to continue
F10 for system partition utilities

my questions are :
-How can I bypass this message to continue booting. I do not have any options allowing me to go into the BIOS.
-How can I enter the BIOS? I've tried F10, with CTRL and A (for advanced options) to no avail.

Regards, madjid

Re: ML530 Server, error on boot

If you don't have the F10 partition installed then pressing ctrl A will not do anything. Is it installed? There is not a BIOS available on this machine which is loaded from ROM. If the partition is not installed, then it will require doing the same thing as described here:

Just like I said in that post, I would recommend finding out what's causing this post message, then the F1 prompt will go away
