G'day @nikita_katti and welcome to linux.org :)

I am moving this to General Server to give you a better chance at getting an answer.

Good luck

dmidecode only displays settings. It doesn't change anything.

On newer dell servers, there is something called iDRAC, you can use a tool called
ipmitool to change "some" of the BIOS setting through iDRAC with this.
There are other tools that let you change RAID controller settings.

It depends on what you want to change, but I know of no tools that has access to
everything.
