RE: RH 7.3 & Motherboard Power Issue



IF your mother board uses a Phoenix BIOS. Go to the 'Power' menu and check
the setting for 'After Power Failure' entry, and change it to 'Power ON'. I
just went and had a look at one of our servers which use this BIOS. And it
has this option. This may help you!
