F1 prompt at boot on HP ProLiant ML370

I have recently removed a HP Tape Device from the server and now get a F1 prompt during the process.

I know this is a SCSI issue but how do I stop this coming up?  Do I have to do anything in Device Manager as well as the start up options?  Where in the BIOS do I change this?

You can completely ignore the hardware failure warning in advance configuration menu. But it's not recommended.

I need to remove as I cannot reboot the server remotely.

Move on to bios and disable the drive port on which this tape drive is attached.

Disable the device in the bios and you will no longer get the F1 warning.

There's an option in BIOS to let it skip past the F1 prompt, sometimes need it if one of the PSUs has failed.

ok red herring with regards to SCSI.

Thank Andy for reminding about the PSU.  There was a PSU failure that I noticed while originally troubleshooting.  This was rectified however I had not rebooted and checked the SCSI issue since then.  

When I just rebooted no F1.  Voila!  Always check the obvious step by step...

Thanks for all your suggestions.
