how to configure DL360 G7 always start from USB??

We have a P410 Smart Array with 2 160GB disks, but we want the DL360 to always start from USB since we're installing ESXi to USB.

Same question applies to DL380 G5.

Thank you, Tom

Hey!

So what are your boot options in BIOS?

There's boot options, I can set boot order in Standard Boot Order IPL but the boot controller order only shows the P410 array controller. Testing now with USB key first in boot order...

Just make sure you don't have any other USB devices plugged in. I was doing a bare metal restore via USB key & was going nuts trying to figure out why it was not booting from USB (front panel). I relized I had the backup drive plugged into one of the backside USB ports. Removed the drive & it magically booted from the USB key! LOL
