Hi list I have a bit of a weird issue. I recently acquired a used server (Fujitsu Primergy TX140 S1) via a friend of mine. I have Gentoo installed on it now and overall it works fine save for one perplexing issue : The bootloader hangs when booting without a keyboard attached. I tried it with both GRUB and systemd-boot (which works nicely in combination with kernel-install); both only work with a keyboard attached. GRUB hangs when the countdown starts, while systemd-boot hangs when the cursor first appears, but before the boot entries are listed. In both cases the cursor freezes.
I'm curious if anybody has seen this issue before and/or has any idea how to solve it. The only resources I could find online that seem related are  (different OS, no resolution, hints at BIOS),  (which provides a potential solution, though I'm not sure whether I can actually implement it), and  (the patch didn't help). There was also a related systemd bug at . I updated the BIOS, but that helped as much as anticipated, that is, not at all (it was at the penultimate version already). I also tried unplugging the display in case the BIOS was expecting a keyboard then. Any help is much appreciated.  Well, there's a second one, too, but I'll have to see if it shows up again.  https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/66696/nas4free-freebsd-wont-make-it-past-bootloader-without-keyboard  https://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-newbie-8/os-cannot-be-loaded-without-keyboard-because-of-grub-805350/  https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/44923  https://github.com/systemd/systemd/pull/3735 Greetings -- Marc Joliet -- "People who think they know everything really annoy those of us who know we don't" - Bjarne Stroustrup
