hi,

I think these are BIOS settings which are fixed by the OEM and it will be unsafe to play with these settings.

Usually F1 means BIOS detected something it does't like, for example broken mirrors. In most of the cases displaying F1 has a timer of about 30sec after which it should start booting.

hello,

I will just specify that F1 still in the screnn and the server can't continous starting. I must press F1 to reboot.

Is there any way to remove this to simplify remote control.

Re: Press F1 to reboot

Hello ALL ,

I am facing the same Problem with my MCS Compaq Servers. But this time not as MAHARIS mentioned that this Error is related to SCSI Drives. The Error Message appears indicating that the Redundant Power Supply is not Functioning. Of Course the real status that all the Servers their Redundant Power Supplies is working effectively and every Boot we have to Press F1 to continue the Booting.

Any ideas about this issue ?

Regards
