BIOSes very seldom fail, so if the message is stating "BIOS / Hardware Failure" imo it would be prudent to look for a hardware failure instead.

At any rate, if the BIOS has really failed (a) reflashing it won't solve the problem and (b) it won't be possible to reboot the machine to reflash the BIOS, because the BIOS self-checks for consistency during POST, and if it fails the self-test the system will not boot.

Differential diagnostic:  You'll have to reboot the system eventually for something, so localize the problem now.  Try to reboot the system and see if it boots.  If it does, it's not a BIOS failure, it's hardware.  If it doesn't reboot it's a BIOS failure, there's very little that can be done about it, and it's time for a new motherboard.

The server now is working fine , but there is another problem , the server shutdown randomly after period of time .
Note : i was update the ILO 4 success to version 2.55 . but the problem still happen.

every thing in server information is green Except power supply and storage , there is one power supply installed and about the storage because there is a rebuilding process .

server info:-

BIOS  P70 02/10/2014
ILO  2.55 Aug 16 2017

You should be able to get to the IML through the iLO, under system status tab. The IML is the hardware log from the motherboard and records any hardware fault.

Just as a heads up ProLiant 300 and above servers have redundant system ROM (BIOS) so you can trash it with a bad flash and it will still boot next time from the backup ROM.
