Prolaiant DC 580 - how to get in to the CMOS

Hi!!!

I am new in this section of ITRC. Well, my manager gave me a old Prolaiant DC 580 server, which was laying ideal. Now i need to bring it up. The hardware is fine, expect the CD ROM. I connected an IDE (with power from another SMPS).

But, how do i get in to the CMOS and configure ? Could any one please help ?

System Config :

CPU : Intel Pentium III Xeon ( 4 Processors)
Memory : 4 GB ECC (100 MHz)
Hard Diks : 18.2 GB (4 Nos ) Ultra SCSI 10,000 RPM (Hot Swap)
Make : Compaq
Model : Prolaiant DC 580
Power Supply : 2 Nos (Hot Swap)

Thanks and regards,
-Ashly

Assuming you have DL580 G1 (first generation):
In G1 servers you get into CMOS by pressing F10 during POST process. F10 will bring system configuration utility.
System configuration utility in G1 servers stored on disk (Utility partition). If you don't have utility partition on the disk you can go into CMOS by using Compaq System Configuration Utility:

or SmartStart 5.50 CD:
