USB or FireWire Boot?

I installed Ubuntu on a USB drive with no problems. However, the 580 only wants to boot from the internal CD. I have no other drives.

I am sure there might be a place to enter the bios and change boot order, but I can't figure out how to do that.

Help please!

Re: USB or FireWire Boot?

You can access it by pressing F9 during POST you'll access the ROM Based Setup Utility - Go to Boot Controller Order and Standard Boot IPL, do the necessary changes, save and then reboot. That's how you change the boot order in ProLiant servers, I don't know if you'll be able to boot from a USB drive... let me know the outcome.
You heve a question... I have an aswer!!!
