Computer Setup (F10) Utility menu descriptions (continued)
POST Delay (None (default), 5, 10, 15, 20 seconds)—Delays start of the POST
process. You might need a delay to:
Remote Wakeup Boot Source (Local Hard Drive/Remote Server). Sets the boot device
for the workstation when it is started using Remote Wakeup (takes precedence over the
Boot Order menu setting) .
System Recovery Boot Support (Enabled/Disabled). Enabling this feature displays an
additional prompt, F11=Recovery, during POST on systems with HP Backup and
Recovery software installed and configured with a recovery partition on the boot hard
drive. Pressing F11 causes the system to boot to the recovery partition and launch HP
Backup and Recovery. You can hide the F11=Recovery prompt by using the F11
prompt option described above.
Bypass F1 Prompt on Confirmation Changes (Enabled/Disabled)—Prevents display of a
confirmation prompt when you make changes to the system.
Lets you disable or specify a weekday and time for BIOS power-on.

behaved PCI add-in cards (that can generate SERR# spuriously)
