Hi Fyamine,
While booting go into the BIOS, use either the dedicated keys or +/- to enable/disable the CD ROM boot ( in the Advanced section of device management), then go into the advanced boot tab and change the boot order (it should be CD->HDD->Pxe->Disabled by Default). After that, restart the server and wait for it to boot from the disk.

I forget bios password for HP DL160 G6 server, how do i reset the password ?


  1. Shutdown your server.
  2. Go inside the server, and remove the CMOS battery. It should look like this.

3. Be sure to power down your server before taking it out. Be aware that once you take this out the system will forget a lot of it's time settings. This is the battery that keeps the computer's memory of time, date, and BIOS password when it's shutdown.

How do I boot from an external CD? The BIOS offers no boot options other than the hard drive. I have attached a USB connected CD drive but the computer will not boot from it. The machine will also not...


The HP Mini are kind of odd, the external CD/DVD or usb drive will only show in BIOS after you plug it in, power it on and then reboot. Then go into BIOS and it should list it in boot priority list. Move it to the top and reboot and it will boot from CD. Also you can press F9 instead and it will let you select the boot device.

Comment back if you need any more help.

If you enter the BIOS menu just before the system boots up, you can choose whether to boot from DVD ROM, LAN, USB etc. Just select what you require and save it.

ProLiant ML150 G6 and DL160 G6 (HP Smart Array B110i SATA RAID) does not support more than 4GB memory, (2GBX2 modules) or more added, it works fine with single 2GB module. Boot OS with single module and upgrade system Rompack to the latest version then upgrade B110i controller driver to 6.8.0.32. Shut down the server, add additional modules. It will work fine.

How do I install sun solaris from a grub prompt when I boot off the setup cd


A grub prompt is most likely coming off the hard disk where you're attempting to boot.

Restart the machine and adjust the bios settings so that the PC will attempt to boot from the CD or DVD drive before attempting to use the hard disk.

It's possible that you may need to burn a new image of the sun solaris ISO. That may be where you need to get help, if your system doesn't seem to be able to boot from this CD but CAN boot from others.
