Array errors prevent unatended reboot.

It appears that several different startup errors detected by the 4200 array controller (and others as well) prevent unattended reboot and display HIT F1 to continue. For example adding an addtl drive while the machine was off or a lack of communication to an storage enclosure (in this case a non-critical resource). This somewhat defeats the hi-reliability design. Can this BIOS behavior be turned off?

Re: Array errors prevent unatended reboot.

Should not turn it off... You MUST update the controller if you add a drive. Once you do update setup, such errors should go away.

If you really want to disable that prompt, go into F10 setup, at the first menu press "Ctrl a" (advanced mode). Go into System Configuration, View/Edit Details and find "F1 Boot Prompt". Press enter on this and set it the way you like. Save and exit.
