TS430 disk boot options

2020-07-21, 23:50 PM

Any SATA drive I have plugged into the system is not available in the BIOS for booting

The BIOS sees the drive in the SATA section

 

If I unplug both any USB storage device AND the CD/DVD drive, then it becomes visible in the BIOS

 

IT has no problem seeing the NICS and LSI RAID devices though

Hi sbab**bleep**

 

You mean you can't see the new drive you plug into the system on BIOS booting menu before you unplug both USB and CD/DVD device?

 

Not sure if this is related, But did you setup RAID or something?

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

Hi sbab**bleep**,

 

Please check the boot sequences in the BIOS Startup or Boot Manager screen, and set the boot device priority as you want.

Please check the Legacy Hard Disk Drives settings as well.

I do have a RAID card with 2 Virtual Drives set up on it but neither have bootable content

 

Is there any way to switch the BIOS back UEFI mode back to Legacy mode - I don;t see an option to do that

All my  bootable options are : UEFI : Network, UEFI:Removable Devices, etc

Hi Sir,

 

Could you please check the CSM option in the Boot options page? If there is the option, please set it to Legacy.

If not, check each device's priority in the Boot options page. Please also set the quiet boot to Disabled.

Hi

 

Can you see CSM in boot option?

 

CSM enable = legacy mode

CSM disable = UEFI mode

Hi Sir,

 

Please check the Hard Disk Drive priority and the Removable Device Priority, set the priority of the devices individually as you want, and then adjust the boot option #1, #2, #3. Save it and exit BIOS to see if the server is able to boot from your harddrive.
