Does anyone know the key (or keyb combo) to skip the memory check on the DELL PowerEdge R805 during the BIOS sequence? DELL Support was not able to locate this info in their docs.

Have you tried ESC?

Yep, I have tried ESC, the F1 keys, spacebar, DEL, etc. I got the BIOS to skip it once, but it was by accident, and figuring this out will save me a lot of time when building these out.

It looks like ESC works fine when you are physically using it on the server in question; but it does not work for me via remote (through the RAC). This may be a limitation of the RAC, according to DELL.
