Using the Boot Manager

Use this information for the Boot Manager.

The Boot Manager 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.

Note: Secure Boot, Agentless support for all Intel Xeon™ E5-2600 v3 systems are depended on the firmware/driver readiness of ServerProven plan options (see the Lenovo ServerProven website).

To use the Boot Manager program, complete the following steps:

  1. Turn off the server.
  2. Restart the server.
  3. When the prompt <F12> Select Boot Device is displayed, press F12.
  4. Use the Up arrow and Down arrow keys to select an item from the menu and press Enter.

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