Re: Proliant DL380 boot menu'

The only servers I'm aware of which may have this feature are the itaniums.

None of the Proliants have a boot menu available from the ROM. This is going to be something from the OS installed (like the ones you already mentioned).
The truth is out there, but I forgot the URL..
