Check if there are any BIOS settings enabled regarding booting from USB devices.

Re: boot from Virtual media

Your description of the hardware is very brief.

>>> connected to kvm switch by a usb cable <<<

I assume you are talking about
HP IP Console Switch G2 with Virtual Media & CAC

so you need : USB Virtual Media, CAC Interface Adapter (PN: AF623AA)
or : HP KVM CNSL SRL/PWR G2 ITFC ADPTR (PN: AF625A)

not just an usb cable?

please correct if I misunderstand your setup.

Re: boot from Virtual media

ya you are right.
i am using ip console switch and my server is connected to kvm by the cable you mentioned.
we have other servers with are connected to kvm by ps2 kvm cables and they are fine.
but the one with usb type have problem.
i couldnt find any settings on bios to help resolve this issue.
