HP Proliant DL 385 G1

Everytime I boot I get F1 to continue.
How do I get rid of that?

you will need to get into BIOS - pressing F9
Server Availability -> POST F1 Prompt

POST F1 Prompt
The POST F1 Prompt option is a toggle setting that configures the server so the F1 key must be pressed to proceed when an error is encountered during the power-up sequence. A series of system tests executes during POST before continuing with the following:

- If failures occur that allow the system to continue operating, the system continues to boot but posts a message.

- If critical components fail or are missing, the server attempts to boot. If it can boot, it posts a message and an F1 prompt.

--- If Enabled is selected and an error occurs, the system stops at the F1 prompt until the F1 key is pressed, before continuing to boot.
--- If Delayed is selected and an error occurs, the system pauses for 20 seconds at the F1 prompt, and then continues to boot the OS.
- If the system cannot run with the missing or failed components, it halts until those components are replaced.

NOTE: The POST F1 Prompt setting is enabled by default in ProLiant ML and DL servers and is disabled by default in BL servers.
