How to boot without operator intervention

On boot up the server requires that I hit F1 to continue with the boot sequence, or F9 to go into diagnostics etc... How can I bypass this stage so the server will boot without anyone hitting the F1 key?

Thanks,

Phil

Go into the F10 partition and at the first window hit CTRL A. This will bring you into Advanced Mode. From here go to Sys Config-> Config HW -> Review and Modify -> View and Edit Details. Hit page down twce and you will see advanced features. Disable F1 prompt.
We are here for a good time, not a long time!

When I go to F10 it tells me that I do not have this function. Will ctrl A work at that screen or is there some additional software or configuration that needs to be loaded?

Hello,
Please download Soft Paq (SP19619) from our Web site and create Software diskettes. This utility required 4 diskettes and boot with the first diskettes and run System configuration Utility to configure your system.
