I'm having trouble getting into BIOs Setup from Supermicro IPMI "KVM" - Remote Control Console Redirection. I need to change the boot order to CDROM first. I'm running Windows 2008 server.
After some Googling, it says here that the method is to:
Press TAB to enter Setup screen. Press Esc twice to take effect.
A month ago, I tried that 30-40 times + DEL, over 2 hours, it worked. Now, I've been trying the same key combination for more than an hour, rebooting each time it failed, it still doesn't work.
Note: I've only got a notebook computer, no extra monitor.
natacado: How are you accessing the remote console? Are you using the graphical KVM-over-IP support, or just the simpler serial-over-LAN?
Reply: I'm using the web based KVM "Console Redirection", see screen capture below. Note, I've also tried SOL but the console is blank all the time.
natacado: Some things vary based on the motherboard you're using, but I'll assume you have a reasonably-recent (last 3 years or so) SuperMicro server.
