does "omconfig chassis biossetup -? " show anything useful for you?
another one tro try would be "omreport chassis biossetup" and see
what's showing up there. I've used "omconfig chassis biossetup" to
enable "CPU Virtualization Technology (cpuvt)" and "AC power recovery
mode (acpwrrecovery)" on PE2900 in the past.
