On a brand new HP ML110 G7 server I tried to enable SATA raid in BIOS so I have a 250 GB mirrored drive

Now the "System Health LED" is flashing red and nothing is happening.  

Is there a button I can press at power on so I can get back to BIOS to change back or can I reset to factory settings somehow?

There is no data on the computer I need

Thanks

You can unplug power, open chassis remove bios battery for 1 or minutes and return it.
Battery looks like a coin!

If this is a problem for you, then an alternative that doesn't always work is:
Power on Server, then press reset button rapidly not allowing the system to boot, this would clear BIOS in some cases!

The battery seems to have a clip holding it in.  
Any idea how I free the battery?
I don't want to break something

It can be removed with a small screw drive(-) not (+), just a little cleck on the opposite side of the clip usually.

Just can't see where to click

The battery comes up at 90 degrees from the motherboard
It is semi enclosed in a stainless steel clasp
This clasp is holding it in

It's just a clip, the battery is meant to be replaced sometime you know, so it is removable, and in an easy not sophisticated manner, so you gotta unlclip it.

It doesn't need exessive force to do it, actually if you are using big force then you are doing it wrong.
Just try to unclip it!

Anyway if it is too much of a hassle the you can just insert a paper between the battery and it's metal holder, that would be the same as unlpugging it!

I have found the way to do it a bit more gracefully.

The problem is it doesn't tell me what to do .... whether to change when server is off ... then turn on or whatever

Just take battery out when server is unplgged of power, this will make it forget previouse settings, wait a little while and then plug everything back in again and start your server, Good Luck!(you don't much need it though)
