Using the Boot Selection Menu program

The Boot Selection Menu program is a built-in, menu-driven configuration utility program that you can use to temporarily redefine the first startup device without changing settings in the Setup utility.

To use the Boot Selection Menu program, complete the following steps:

  1. Turn off the blade server.
  2. Restart the blade server.
  3. Press F12 (Select Boot Device). If a bootable USB mass storage device is installed, a submenu item (USB Key/Disk) is displayed.
  4. Use the Up Arrow and Down Arrow keys to select an item from the Boot Selection Menu and press Enter.

The next time the blade server starts, it returns to the startup sequence that is set in the Setup utility.
