Anybody know if the DQ77KB board boots ok if you don't have a keyboard, mouse or Monitor attached?

Also a comment on NewEgg for the DQ77KB said you can't disable Intel AMT , is this a problem at all?

Thanks

Yes sure you can boot as a headless server. You just have to disable the halt if no keyboard is present in the BIOS & few tweaks. Thats it

Bear in mind that there are much better boards to build a server within the same price range or a little higher.

Thanks Ziad but it's only for a home file server download box so i don't need a power house.

I know that normally on most boards you just need to do a bios tweak but i need someone with this board to make sure you can as there are a lot of complaints about this board and someone in the intel vt-d section seems to think you need to have a monitor attached with this board before it will boot.
