An HP Proliant DL380e Gen8 BIOS P73 (03/01/2013) using iLO4 suffers from USB CD/DVD drive boot issues after a reboot, as described in HP Advisory c02707749. External USB DVD drive details are:
Product ID: 0x0719 Vendor ID: 0x05e3 (Genesys Logic, Inc.)
Version: 0.09 Serial Number: 33 Speed: Up to 480 Mb/sec
Location ID: 0x1d111000 / 12 Current Available (mA): 500 Current Required (mA): 96
Our workaround is to "Restore Default System Settings". Then it is possible to boot from the external USB DVD drive again.
Is there anyone that has found a better workaround or solution to boot an HP Proliant from USB DVD drive?
