F2, F10, F12 and Delete are all common keys for entering BIOS.

Try another keyboard, and if you have no onboard RAID, try resetting the BIOS.

Do you have a Remote Insight Lights Out board in that server?  There is a notice that a certain version may cause mouse detection problems: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&taskId=110&prodSeriesId=96452&prodTypeId=15351&prodSeriesId=96452&objectID=PSD_ES010405_CW01
