MS660 OWNER'S HANDBOOK
Displayless Operation
If this option is "Disabled", POST will look for an attached
monitor and report an error an error if it is faulty or missing; if
"Enabled", POST will allow the computer to start without a
monitor.
Keyboardless Operation
If this option is "Disabled", POST will look for an attached
keyboard and report an error if it is faulty or missing; if "Enabled",
POST will allow the computer to start without a keyboard.
Start-up Devices
These options allow you to specify where the BIOS looks for an
operating system when it boots. If the computer cannot locate an
operating system on the First Startup Device, it tries the Second
Startup Device and so on.
Note that if the First Startup Device is set to "Disabled", the
computer will be unable to boot.
The possible settings depend on the number and type of devices
that are installed in your computer. For example, "Diskette Drive
1" is not a possible setting without a second floppy disk drive.
By default, the First Startup Device is "Diskette Drive 0" and the
Second Startup Device is "Hard Disk 0". this should not normally
need to be changed.
Power On Self Test
The POST can be selected to either run only a "Quick" set of tests
or a more thorough (but longer) "Enhanced" set.
Virus Detection
If this option is "Enabled", each time the computer boots the BIOS
will check the startup device to find if a boot sector virus has crept
in. This is not an infallible check against the newer types of viruses,
but it can help.
