[Scenic] Scenic 850 fails boot without PS/2 keyboard present

Postby joao_prates » Mon Feb 26, 2007 15:24


I've just upgraded two Fujitsu-Siemens Scnenic 850 computers with two new Microsoft Optical Desktop Elite for Bluetooth®.

The problem is that although I have changed BIOS settings to NOT halt on any errors, both computers fail to boot.
They don't even reach the POST stage if there is no keyboard present at the PS/2 socket.

Do you have any BIOS update or can you make one alfa or beta version available that would not check for the physical PS/2 keyboard presence?

I just want to avoid the stupidity of having old keyboards stuck on the PCs just for the purpose of making them boot, and the PCs are still in good shape and serve their purpose well.
