I''ve never found a computer that won''t boot without a keyboard.

Generally they get annoyed and complain, but they go ahead and boot up anyway.

Why, does yours refuse to start?

Hello Xabbu,

1) Boot without keyboard referring to it no plugged in?
2) Boot without keyboard referring to a KVM switch and you arent selected on that comp?
3) Boot without keyboard referring to the fact you dont want one and the motherboard keeps whining about it?
4) else...

Edit: Ah ok. Well usually a computer needs a computer to boot with, but I'll look into it more and see if there is a way/procedure to actually bypass the motherboards search for one.

Question, how do i acces BIOS?

when your computer is starting up it will say something like hit DEL to enter setup or hit F2 or whatever. hit that key and you'll enter the BIOS setup. presumably that's what you mean. or do you mean, "how do i directly talk to the BIOS through a program"?

either way, accessing the BIOS will definitely require a keyboard
