Hi Peeps can somone help me find the boot option on a microserver gen8  to avoid this message popping up during bootup. I am hoping to find someway or an option to make the bootup quicker. Right now I have a SSD drive in the ODD port of the server. Can someone please assist ?

Sorry for the lack of a good picture. This server is not normally attached to any monitor and I havent setup the ILO on it - had to take a quick photo while it was plugged into the kids TV 😕

While it might be possible to eliminate this part of the startup sequence ...

… I think the elaborate startup regime the GEN8 goes through before launching an OS (on an SSD or otherwise) will defeat your purpose. The machine is designed as a server with all sorts of administrative consistency checks, not a tablet for fast start/resume.

Takes my … base-model … GEN8's about 2 minutes to reach the characteristic 'beep' from cold; then about 30 seconds to be settled into Windows.
