UEFI Server

The UEFI server firmware differs from legacy BIOS systems. With the UEFI mode switched on, the option ROM setup programs for devices such as RAID cards are not accessible using the history CTRL + R / CTRL + G etc. methods that were used previously.

Instead, accessing the RAID card configuration program is achieved through the main BIOS Setup.

How to Access RAID Card Settings

  • Go into the BIOS during system POST, by tapping the F2 key
  • Go into the Setup Menu
  • Then go into the Advanced Menu, then PCI Configuration
  • Go into UEFI Option ROM Control
  • Find the RAID Controller you wish to modify in the list of devices, and then press Enter to go into its settings. It may be listed under "Storage Controller"

  • You can then directly configure the RAID Card

  • To see the Physical drive Health, dependant on the RAID card, go through the following sub-menus:
    • View Server Profile
    • Drive Management

  • To see the Virtual drive Health, dependant on the RAID card, go through the following sub-menus:
    • View Server Profile
    • Virtual Drive Management
