How to deactivate mouse and keyboard check

I want a desktop computer (Windows XP Pro) to act as file and database server. Everything works fine all necessary programms and processes start automatically.

The only problem is when I unplug keyboard and mouse the error message "no keyboard present, press F1...." and "no mouse present, press F1..." appear on boot up. How can I deactivate the check? I looked in the BIOS however I could not find anything. Usually there is a setting like "Halt on:" or "Start in Server Mode". However not with this mainboard.

It's an MSI K9AGM3 mainboard.

Anybody know a workaround? I don't want to leave keyboard or mouse plugged in because there are a lot of DAUs running around in the office.

I looked through the BIOS manual for that MB and I didn't see a setting either. Maybe it's in there, but it wasn't where I thought it should be.

You could always get a couple of port terminators to take care of it. Google "ps2 keyboard terminator" and you'll see some options.

Thanks for the hint, I'll get one of those.
