When I ask my remote hands people, i have them connect a KVM to see what the error message is, only for them to tell me the server is at:
Press F1 To Continue, DEL to enter SETUP
Well, next time this happens to you, tell your remote hands people to disable it. How do you disable it? well, i will show you:
first get into the BIOS, in this example guide, i will be using an intel board i use for a customer's web site.
Step 1. So, this is the error message you will see (or your remote hands people)
Step 2. To go to the BIOS configuration, in my case, i am going to press "Delete" button. One i am in the BIOS, I am going to look for the "HALT ON" Option. Select it and choose the "No Errors" Options.
Step 3. Save your changes and reboot
SUMMARY: So what does all this mean? most likely you are not going to have the same BIOS as I do. But the idea is the same and simple:
1. access your BIOS - you can access your BIOS when the computer is starting up. usually pressing F2 or Delete or Esc will give you access to BIOS
2. once you are in bios, go into the Boot section and look for anything that would stop the computer if no floppy drive is found.
Newer computers dont come with floppy drives, so this should not be an issue with new computers.
i want to help as much people as i can, can you please tell me what kind of machine you are using when you got this error... please.
Manufacturer: (example, HP)
Type: (server or pc)
