Boot into BIOS on an HP Pro Liant DL380 G4

I have installed 64bit Server 2k8r2 on my hp pro liant dl380 g4 server which was fine.

I am now trying to install sql server 2008 standard 64bit on it but it does not give an option to install 64bit and automatically does 32bit...

I wanted to look in the bios to see if there are any switches that need switching to cater for this installation but I am unable to boot into the server bios.

Summary: I cannot boot into the bios of my hp pro liant dl380 g4 server.

Thanks

If you have 2008R2 installed as the OS, you are definately running 64bit as it won't install on 32bit machines.

When you say 'automatically does 32bit' - what makes you think that?

I should have added that I have tried pressing F2, F8 and F12 during boot up and have looked for BIOS boot indicators during boot up but there does not seem to be any.  I have also tried the ctrl-s option which is only a boot sequence menu.

The reason I suspect it is installing 32bit is because when I get as far as specifying the installation path it displays x86 within the default folder name.

Should I ignore this?

Yes, you can ignore that if it's in the field 'Shared feature directory (x86)'.

If you are unsure, post a screen shot :)

That's the same field I was referring to - you can ignore it and carry on.
