Enter the BIOS in any of the following ways:
Press the Delete key during the POST process to enter the BIOS user mode menu.
Press ctrl+alt+1 (number1, not the letter l) during the POST process to enter the BIOS advanced menu. (This method is not recommended because if BIOS key parameters are modified by mistake the server cannot operate properly.)

A password is required for logging in to the BIOS. The default password is Huawei12#$ or uniBIOS123. For RH5885 V2 servers, the default password is Huawei5885.
