f1, or f10 problem

When I reboot my server, it gets stuck at bios, with the following error:

f1 to continue
f10 to load smartstart siagnostics tools...blah blah..

pressing f1 boots OS, pressing f10 will give me a "disgnostic tools not loaded" error...

how do i fix this?

Re: f1, or f10 problem

You can turn this feature off using the advanced configuration mode of the system configuration utility. Press F10 to launch the f10 partition utilitys on the main screen press space bar and then hold down the CTRL key and hit "A" and a pop will tell you an advanced mode is enabled then go the the System configuration utility and under the advanced features sub section and disabled "Stop of F1 prompt". Upon a reboot it will simple fall through the F1 prompt and boot OS. But it would be better to remove the cause of the use. I would run Diags to clear the error.

Hope this helps

Re: f1, or f10 problem

If you disable this future, you will not be able to know if you have an unconfigure device on the server. As suggested, the best solution is run diagnostics. If it does not solve the problem, clear NVAM from the Advanced Future and rerun the SCU.
