OPROM BIOS commands

The PERC Command Line Tool supports the following OPROM BIOS commands:

perccli /cx[/ex]/sx set bootdrive=on|off 
perccli /cx/vx set bootdrive=on|off 
perccli /cx show bootdrive

The detailed description for each command follows.

perccli /cx[/ex]/sx set bootdrive=on|off

This command sets the specified physical drive as the boot drive. During the next reboot, the BIOS looks for a boot sector in the specified physical drive. The eHBA mode supports setting a Non-RAID disk as a boot drive.

Input example:

perccli /c0[/e32]/s4 set bootdrive=on

perccli /cx/vx set bootdrive=on|off

This command sets the specified virtual drive as the boot drive. During the next reboot, the BIOS looks for a boot sector in the specified virtual drive.

Input example:

perccli /c0/v0 set bootdrive=on

perccli/cx/vx show bootdrive

This command shows the boot drive for the controller. The boot drive can be a physical drive or a virtual drive. The existing configured boot drives will be displayed.

Input example:

perccli /c0/v0 show bootdrive
