Booting a deskpro EN without keyboard:

As I want to use this as a small print server, I'd like to operate it
without a keyboard (using VNC).

In the bios, there seems to be no entry about 'Halt on no errors', so
if I try to boot without keyboard it halts (with 'keyboard error,
press F1 to continue...)

Is there any way to trick it, or any hidden entry?
