DL580G1 Keyboard error, F1 to continue

I'm facing a problem with a system that hangs during the boot on a Keyboard that is not connected. Normally this is not needed and I use more systems in this way.

I have tried with the latest 5.50 SmartStart Floppies, because when you have specific BIOS-settings SmartStart will not boot anymore for 100%, to find the setting for this, bu I can't find it out.

I hear a lot of things about CTRL+A for Advanched Mode, but when and Where do I have to use this ?

Or are there orther solutions to solve this, and not connect a keyboard ;)

Re: DL580G1 Keyboard error, F1 to continue

it's just the server has POST F1 Prompt enable and when this happens you have to press when any error is detected is this case the keyboard.

disable RBSU(BIOS) pressing F9, after that go to
Server Availability
- POST F1 Prompt and disable

Sorry, but I'm talking about a G1, this needs a SmartStart to get into the BIOS if I'm right.

yes you can use smartsmart cd to get access to RBSU

- you have to select Deploy server(when SmartStart is loaded)
- and select reboot to RBSU it will show RBSU without press any key

or on POST when the server Prompt F10(for system maintenance menu), press it
- and select setup utility

Hi Karlo,

Thanks for the detailed answer !

Last question, this is the same for SmartStart 5.5, I assume you are talking about this version ?

Re: DL580G1 Keyboard error, F1 to continue

to tell you the truth I have tried tried but my servers don not support it(smartstart 5.5) so I think:

- take a chance and test 5.5 to see if the option to reboot using RBSU is presented

and let us know if not what about the other option I told you
