Starting the backup server firmware
The system board contains a backup copy area for the server firmware. This is a
secondary copy of server firmware that you update only during the process of
updating server firmware. If the primary copy of the server firmware becomes
damaged, use this backup copy.
To force the server to start from the backup copy, turn off the server; then, place the
UEFI boot recovery J29 jumper in the backup position (pins 2 and 3).
Use the backup copy of the server firmware until the primary copy is restored. After
the primary copy is restored, turn off the server; then, move the UEFI boot recovery
J29 jumper back to the primary position (pins 1 and 2).
Using the ServerGuide Setup and Installation CD
The ServerGuide Setup and Installation CD contains a setup and installation
program that is designed for your server. The ServerGuide program detects the
server model and optional hardware devices that are installed and uses that
information during setup to configure the hardware. The ServerGuide program
simplifies operating-system installations by providing updated device drivers and, in
some cases, installing them automatically.
You can download a free image of the ServerGuide Setup and Installation CD or
purchase the CD from the ServerGuide fulfillment Web site at http://www.ibm.com/
systems/management/serverguide/sub.html. To download the free image, click IBM
Service and Support Site.
Note: Changes are made periodically to the IBM Web site. The actual procedure
might vary slightly from what is described in this document.
The ServerGuide program has the following features:
v An easy-to-use interface
v Diskette-free setup, and configuration programs that are based on detected
v ServeRAID Manager program, which configures your ServeRAID adapter or
v Device drivers that are provided for the server model and detected hardware
v Operating-system partition size and file-system type that are selectable during
Features and functions can vary slightly with different versions of the ServerGuide
program. To learn more about the version that you have, start the ServerGuide
Setup and Installation CD and view the online overview. Not all features are
supported on all server models.
The ServerGuide program requires a supported IBM server with an enabled
startable (bootable) CD drive. In addition to the ServerGuide Setup and Installation
CD, you must have your operating-system CD to install the operating system.
