Configuring the Boot Order

Change or configure the boot order on the targeted client-systems. On client systems with Legacy Boot Devices, the Boot Order feature allows you to make permanent or one-time boot sequence changes.
NOTE: This Boot Order feature is not supported in UEFI boot mode.
  1. Launch the Dell Command | Intel vPro Out of Band application.
  2. Click Client Configuration > Boot Order.
  3. The table lists all the possible Boot devices. Change the boot order by:
    • Moving the boot devices up or down the order by clicking the Up or Down arrows at the bottom of the table.
    • Disabling boot devices by selecting or deselecting the check-box next to the Boot Device.
  4. Select one of the configuration options:
    • One-time boot configuration — If you want the boot-order to be changed for only one reboot cycle.
      NOTE: The boot-order is permanently changed if this option is not selected.
    • Continue on error — If you want the task execution to continue to subsequent clients systems when an error occurs, select the Continue on error option. Otherwise, task execution stops on the first client system where an error is encountered.
    • Reboot client after applying changes — If you want to reboot the client systems after applying changes.
  5. Click Next.
    The Select Clients tab is opened.

    Depending on your schedule, select one of the following options:
    • Run now — the changes to the Boot Order is immediately applied and displays the Running status in the Task Queue.
    • Run At — the changes to the Boot Order is queued in the Task Queue.
      NOTE: You can launch the Task Queue to view the list of completed and pending tasks.
    NOTE: If your client systems are not connected to the network, run the task again.
  10. Provide a name to the task you are running and clickNext.
    The Summary tab is displayed.
  11. Click Finish.
    The Task Queue window is opened and depending on how you scheduled the task, it starts running immediately or will be queued.
