Hi everyone. I am new to these forums and glad to see something available like this.
Getting right to the point...
I am wondering how or if I can configure a networked system without a keyboard so when it restarts there is no "no keyboard" error at BIOS and just waits for input?
Essentially I want the system to be able to restart unattended without a keyboard attached.
any ideas???????
Thanks!

HI , if you go into the bios and the cmos settings some have a halt on .. and you can change to all errors or all but keyboard and mouse etc...
I hope this helps you .

nope. that only works on certain motherboards. ami and award both have that option but some do not.
UPDATE:
I did get this issue resolved...seems linux has just a big a problem so even if i was able to have the proper bios, linux hates a no keyboard environment and usually hangs.
Here is what i did..
I took a ps2 keyboard and literally ripped it apart and took the small circuit (2"x3") board out which connects directly to the ps2 cable itself. So I do have something coming out of the port but it is no bigger than a parallel cable. I can handle that.

Thanks to anyone who tried!
Dave
