What is the best way to delay server startup?  HP DL320 G5.  Assume it is a bios function, but am unable to locate it.  In fact, I believe I have seen it on another DL320.  Purpose is to delay startup of this server until the main SQL / Domain Controller is fully up.  Perhaps 5 - 10 minutes.

Could use the Windows start up delay?

Could you break it down?  I can't locate the correct cocktail to make it work.

Sorry wrong image.

Right select My Computer -> Properties -> Advanced tab -> Startup and Recovery section, settings button.
Adjust time in Time to display OS to 300 - 600 seconds as needed.

The BIOS setting is under server availability - power-on delay but it only goes up to 60 seconds.
