CLI Mode Selection

On select newer servers, the BIOS automatically determines whether to run in CLI mode or full-screen, menu-based mode for ROM embedded utilities. If a VT100-compatible terminal is being used with BIOS Serial Console, CLI mode is selected for that boot. If BIOS Serial Console is disabled or not in use, the full-screen, menu-based interface is used. You can force the utilities to always run in CLI mode by selecting Command-Line Enable in the BIOS Interface Mode selection.



0 = Command-Line Disable

Disable CLI mode

1 = Command-Line Enable

Always enable CLI mode

2 = Auto CLI Enable

Auto determine CLI mode
