But... what does appear in the screen before you press enter? In a default Windows installation there's not a 5 seconds countdown.

Hi Halabi,

This is a problem with the ILo version 1.42.
If you are using the same, please downgrade it to the lower version,

If you are using any other version please post the same.

Re: BL460c Booting problem

Hello Walid,
1) Edit boot.ini & change the wait time to 0 secs;
2) Wait for iLO firmware 1.50, later this year or jan '08(this issue shud be corrected in the new version)
