Hi Carlos,Most likely your

Hi Carlos,

Most likely your server has a corrupted bios and you need to recover the bios.   The best way get this is by doing the BIOS recovery using the documentation below.  The recovery image that you need to put on the USB flash drive can be found in the HUU iso, you will need to extract this image and some folder inside the iso to get to this recovery iso. Note that you want to select the same firmware version that your system is currently running.   You can download this image using the second link below.
