thread513-1534953: IBM eServer x232 No CD Boot
I have the exact same server model as listed in above mentioned thread plus a ServeRAID-6M controller, with the exact same problem.  I lost my logical drive (all physical disks are defunct/offline) I have no need to salvage data. Wish only to create a new array/logical disk to install OS from scratch. But am unable to boot off cd-rom to use ServeRAID manager CD,  despite specifying CD-ROM as the first boot device in BIOS.  Each time I boot, just as in thread above, it fails to find a bootable device and gives me the "F1" screen.  The resolution for previous thread (reset BIOS to default options) has not worked for me.

Am at my wits end.
