How to get the BIOS interface displayed in colors ?

Hello, i'm using the Manageability commander tool from intel in a lab enviroment here and connected to a HP dc7800, when i remotely connect to the system BIOS it only gets displayed in black and white character mode. Is there any tweak, configuration setting available that allows me to see the BIOS interface in real colors like when sitting in front of the machine ? In the Intel DEMO video it does show the BIOS like that.

Thanks

Alex

There is not a setting to determine if the SOL interface shows the BIOS in color or black white. The OEM determines how the BIOS is output to the SOL interface. The DC7800 SOL interface is in black and white. The demo you saw may have been from a different model or different OEM.

Got the trick, change terminal setting to ANSI in bios. I've documented it here in detail.
