Setting up HP ML30 Gen 10

Hello everyone. So i need help with directing my HP proliant ML30 boot from external USB DVD drive.
The OS i wish to install is a windows 10 on the new machine. I have 3 HDD installed already and from previous responses i have configured RAID technology. And I have set it to boot on the primary 1TB HDD.
Unfortunately, whenever i power on with my USB external drive plugged. The system boots and ends on the "No network boot found" page. Without booting to the DVD drive.
Please a very detailed step-by-step explanation would be of great help because am way above my head here.
Thanks all

Hello Raphael_George,

You can check if external USB ports are enabled in BIOS or not and need to enable USB boot support.

Here is the procedure to check:

External USB ports:

Reboot the server & press F9 to launch system utilities > From the System Utilities screen, select System Configuration > BIOS/Platform Configuration (RBSU) > System Options > USB Options > USB Control > select All USB Ports Enabled >Save your setting

Enable USB boot support:

Select USB boot support option in the same screen and select Enabled > Save your setting and reboot the server.

For more information refer to this document(Section- Configuring USB options) https://support.hpe.com/hpesc/public/docDisplay?docId=a00016407en_us 

Press F11 druring POST to launch one time boot menu and select the boot device from the list, the server now should boot from the external USB.

Hope it helps!
