I’m a little late now that you have it removed, but there is a key(s) that disables the boot check. My earlier version defaulted to holding both Alt keys during boot, and my current 2001 you just have to hold one Alt key. From Norton:

To bypass startup protection:

Press and hold the Alt key during the entire boot process. This bypasses startup protection for this startup only. You can specify different bypass keys from the Options – Startup Scan page.
