ProLiant ML370 G4


We cannot acces the BIOS/RBSU anymore in order to change the boot process.

F9 doesn't work.

F8 bring ILO.
Tried some switched on system board switch in order to boot on ROMPqa floppy or USB...no chance so far.

IT contractor tried to upgrade RBSU Firmware and I believe it has not worked out.

Any suggestions on switches in order to force boot on floppy?

Re: ProLiant ML370 G4

believe it or not in certain circumstances f9 and f10 do not always work remotely , or from kvm somtimes its bug,,that occurs sometimes,under particular circumstances,,

clear maintenance switch nr 6 it is shown on the cover you remove f9 will work it is a matter of timing ,

remove disks and controller cables then try access it should work via F(9
if you still have issue remove all pci cards and net cable to ilo as well
enjoy :)

Thanks very much !!!
After three days of work on getting the proper switch settings etc.. removing all PCI cards and using the switch 6 allowed me to boot on floppy and restore the RBSU/BIOS

Back on getting this server working!!
