Choosing which Bay to boot windows from - HP Gen8

Recommended Posts

Taztaztic

Hi all,

 

I am new to the server world (please be gentle) and I desperately need some help!

 

I recently acquired a HP MicroServer Gen8. Bays 1 & 2 have 1TB SSD each and I believe they are setup in a RAID 1 config (not sure how to check) and have windows server 2012 installed.

 

Bays 3 & 4 are empty and I recently purchased a 4TB WD Blue Hard Drive and managed to install windows 10 onto it via a separate computer.

 

I've now inserted the 4TB Hard drive into bay 3 and want windows 10 to load up, but its not doing that....it keeps loading up windows server 2012 thats in bays 1/2 hard drives.

 

How can I choose which bay to boot windows from? I like it to boot from Bay 3 most of the time that has windows 10.

 

In normal computers, it was simple to organise the boot order via BIOS, but with the Gen8 its seems very complex with HP's own BIOS...etc and it's starting to give me a headache!

 

Any help from anyone will be really appreciated!

 

A simple easy to follow instructions will suffice. :P

      Hey guys,
       
      Has anyone around here been successful in setting up Proxmox on a Gen8 using a HBA for storage?

      Hey guys,
       
      As of June 2020, what are the latest versions of firmware for HP Microserver Gen8 to be installed on the system itself? Also do any other components have updatable firmware/os-independent software?
       
      So far my list is as follows:
      BIOS - J06 (04/04/2019) iLO 4 - v2.73 (11/02/2020) Intelligent Provisioning - v1.71 (20/02/2019)  
      and I guess the following could also be added (although both out of date):
      Smart Update Manager (HP SUM) - v8.1.0 (21/12/2017) Service Pack for ProLiant (06/11/2017)  
      Date formated as DD/MM/YYYY.
       
      I believe all the B120i Smart Storage stuff is part of Intelligent Provisioning.
