I am currently setting up a Dell server. I am now in the process of Deploying an OS utilizing the "Deploy OS" option in the life cycle controller and it let me select between UEFI and BIOS. I am aware that UEFI has a lot more options than BIOS, but I am not sure if it will work well in my situation and with the configurations that I have been task with. Some of the configurations that I have to perform are the following:
1) Harden the BIOS by securing it with a password
2) Configure 2 virtual disks (both configured with RAID 10) one for OS and second one for data. Both disks ending with 1.7 TB and 10 TB respectively after the RAID 10 configuration.
so with the requirements stated above, I am left with the questions below:
- if I decide to choose UEFI, can I harden UEFI with a password as I can do with BIOS?
- and if I decide to go with BIOS, will it support the size of my drives?
Any help will be appreciated.
