Dell OEM-R 720xd || Server keeps booting to its System Setup
I have a server that keeps 'F2 = Entering System Setup' after every reboot. The server does not have a keyboard attached to it, and I even went ahead and disabled all the USB ports in the BIOS just to be sure. However, the server keeps booting to the System Setup.
The boot sequence has been set as follows: 1. Harddrive C: Integrated RAID Controller 1: PERC H710 || All Virtual disks are ready! 2. Integrated NIC 1 (Normally this one is the first, but changed for testing purposes)
=========================================== System Information Description OEM-R 720xd BIOS Version 2.7.0 Node Id DRF**** Express Service Code 29956****** Host Name OS Name OS Version System Revision I Lifecycle Controller Firmware 126.96.36.199 IDSDM Firmware Version N/A
What I would check on is if you have the F1/F2 prompt and the Keyboard errors disabled in the Miscellaneous Settings screen. If not then try that to see if it still occurs. Normally when you get prompting to the BIOS, it is due to something being enabled, but isn't present, or vice versa.
Also, does the issue stop if you add a keyboard?
Lastly, was anything done to the server prior to this occurring, such as adding hardware or updating the server?
Let me know.

In regards to the F1/F2 prompt and the Keyboard errors disabled in the Miscellaneous Settings screen. I tried both, disabled and enabled. There was nothing changed on the server itself, it just rebooted after an error (Please find the image attached) and it has been like that ever since.
I tried rearranging the boot sequence to see what it does, but no matter what I try, it just goes to the setup services as soon as I reboot it.
