how to prevent boot from sd card

Hi

i have a dl380 g7 and i want to be able to use the sc slot as a normal card reader. when the windows is booted up and i insert the card, everything works perfectly, but after reboot the system recognizes the sdcard as drive c and tries to boot it and since there is no os, it wonk boot.

is there anyway to bypass the sdcard in boot?

ps. its my first server, i appreciate the simplicity of answers in advance.

Hi,

You may disable the Internal SD Card : 

Enabling or disabling the Internal SD Card Slot

Procedure
  1. From the System Utilities screen, select System Configuration > BIOS/Platform Configuration (RBSU) > System Options > USB Options > Internal SD Card Slot and press Enter.
  2. Select a setting and press Enter:
    1. Enabled—The server can access the internal SD card slot.
    2. Disabled—The server cannot access the internal SD card slot.
  3. Press F10.

 

Also change the Boot Order referring the Page Nm 75.

Try and let me know if it worked.

Thank you

Re: how to prevent boot from sd card

I tried the boot order and it did the trick. Thanks.
Just out of curiosity, if i disable the card reader as u instructed, would it still function in windows?

Hi,

Great! Thanks for confirming.

Dsiabling the Card will disable the Internal USB function / Port.

Other Port should function normally.

Would suggest not to alter any if all the Ports are working as requried.

Thank you
