Hide thumbs


Using UEFI System Utilities

To use the System Utilities, use the following keys.
Access System Utilities
Navigate menus
Select items
Save selections
Access Help for a highlighted configuration
Scan the QR code on the screen to access online help for the UEFI
System Utilities and UEFI Shell.
Default configuration settings are applied to the server at one of the following times:
Upon the first system power-up
After defaults have been restored
Default configuration settings are sufficient for typical server operations; however, you can modify
configuration settings as needed. The system prompts you for access to the UEFI System Utilities each
time the system is powered up.

Flexible boot control

This feature enables you to do the following:
Add Boot Options:
Browse all FAT16 and FAT32 file systems.
To add a new UEFI boot option, select an X64 UEFI application with an .EFI extension. For
example, adding an OS boot loader or other UEFI application as a new UEFI boot option.
The new boot option is appended to the boot-order list. When you select a file, you are prompted to
enter the boot option description. This description, and any optional data to be passed to an .EFI
application, is then displayed in the boot menu.
Boot to System Utilities
After pre-POST, the boot options screen appears. During this time, you can access the UEFI System
Utilities by pressing the F9 key.
Choose between supported modes:
Legacy BIOS Boot Mode
UEFI Boot Mode
If the default boot mode settings are different than the user-defined settings, the system might
not boot the OS installation if the defaults are restored. To avoid this issue, use the User
Defined Defaults feature in UEFI System Utilities to override the factory default settings.
For more information, see the UEFI System Utilities user guide for your product on the Hewlett Packard
Enterprise Information Library.
