BIOS Settings - Boot Order & Boot Devices

Postby Julia Rieckmann » Fri Jun 05, 2009 1:38 pm

Dear all,

one of our customers had the problem, that his server did not boot correctly and ended up in a black screen. We compared the BIOS Settings and found a failure that is not comprehensible.

The standard Boot Order of the PB Media Servers is the following:
1st Boot Device: SATA 0;HL-DT-ST DVD (this name can vary when the DVD Rom Device changed)
2nd Boot Device: 3Ware Storage Controller
3rd Boot Device: IBA GE Slot 0400 (for the Network Card)

There are two more settings for the Boot Devices:
Boot Option Retry: Disabled
USB Boot Priority: Disabled

In the BIOS of the customers server the third Boot Device was disabled. When enabled the server booted up normally. This is a bit mysterious..

Best regards,
