bypassing 'Press "F1" key to continue'

Hello. My ProLiant 1600 stops immediately after hardware initialization and prompts me to:

Press "F1" key to continue
"F10" key for System Partition Utilities

How can I bypass this? If this server is rebooted remotely it would hang here and I don't intend to keep a keyboard/monitor attached to it.

Hello Don,
Please disable F1 in the BIOS which can be done by pressing F10 and hold down the Ctrl Key and hit 'A' which will enable Advanced Mode. About 1/3rd down you will see the F1 key. This is where you can enable or disable it.
