Keyboard Installed

Some BIOSes let you specify explicitly if there is a keyboard in the system. The default is of course "Installed" (or "Yes", etc.) If you are using a PC without a keyboard (for example, for a file server or secured network PC) this will instruct the BIOS to skip the keyboard test during the POST. Also see the "Halt On" setting for a different way to accomplish this task.
