keyboardless Deskpro EN SFF

My deskpro won't boot without keyboard (waiting for press F1), but I would like to use it for a headless router.

I know that I have to set Network Server Mode (or similar) in bios, but cannot find this setting.

There is a utility called no_f1.com out there for older pentium compaq's to modify this setting in cmos...
Can I use it for Deskpro EN SFF?

Thanks in advance

The trick is to assign a power on password then you will get your Network Server option.

So far as I know, NO_F1 will work on an EN. A copy is attached to this reply. See paperclip icon.
