Hello Everyone,

I'm looking for BIOS reference information for an IBM x3400 7975 ( ac1 ) server; ServeRaid 8k ( 2 SAS 73gb 15krpm hdds ). I've googled, yahoo'd, and bing'd for "ibm server bios settings" even "bios settings" but I can't find a source for what various settings are needed/required/cause issues. I've found and read for about a week and half about various settings, most of which are not really useful to me :s Most are about standard BIOS setups

So i'm wondering if anyone knows of a specific link for IBM System X BIOS options/settings/xref/configurations? I guess i'm kind of asking, what do I need to search for? Do I need to buy a book?

Thank you,


Ps: Yes i'm having issues setting up, installing, etc, but rather than post my settings, wants, and issues, figured i'd see what I can do first. Thank you again. I've flashed the BIOS to 1.74 and ServeRaid to 17003

RE: Ref for x3400 7975 ac1 please

Thank you, Be Back in about a week if I'm still clueless
