Lenovo TD350 no boot from USB option (BIOS v4.25.0)

Hello,

 

We have a TD350 that has no option on the Boot Menu for USB. Any ideas?

 

Thanks

Hi ITC

 

If you have inserted USB to machine when booting up, it should be able to see USB option on boot menu.

Please feel free to leave your comment, thank you for support Lenovo

No luck with USB in the server. Boot options still only show the RAID

I've noticed that I need to go into boot options in the bios and adjust the boot order to get usb cd / flash drives to boot, and that it will not boot my usb hard drive even though I select it in the boot order. The boot menu doesn't seem to work.

We do not even see the option for USB in the boot menu.

HI ITC

 

Have you format USB into bootable device? if yes, then it should able to be seen in boot menu.

 

Maybe we can try something:

1. Check "BIOS" → "Boot Manager"→ "Exclude Boot Device", if there is any device in here, please clear it.

2. Go to "BIOS"→ "Save & Exit"→ "Load Optimized Defaults" to reset BIOS, then try again.

Hi ITC,

 

     I have a USB bootable key with redhat OS in it and I can see the USB key in the boot menu of my TD350 server, the following picture for your reference,

Hi ITC,
    I upgraded the BIOS of my TD350 from V3.34  to V4.25 just now and I still can see my bootable USB key with redhat OS both in boot menu and in BIOS boot manager.  Here is the BIOS picture for your reference. The BIOS picture in my last post is without USB bootable key inserted and the following picture is with my bootable USB key inserted to my machine. And you can see the ''boot option #7 " which is my bootable USB key with redhat OS in the BIOS boot manager.

Thanks everyone for the assistance. Appears to have been an issue with the USB flash drive. Tried another flash drive and it is working now. 

 

Thanks again!
