Dell PE T410 gets stuck on F1

Every time my SBS 2011 Standard server is restarted I have to physically be there to hit "F1" so it continue to reboot. The only message I see along the way is something about an non-Dell memory stick installed but it continues for awhile then it gets to the "Select F1 to continue...". Without swapping ram, is there a way to override this, maybe in the BIOS?

Vendors like to stall on non-vendor parts (Dell is not the only one). Either continue to hit F1 to continue or replace the memory with Dell memory.
Something not likely to help, but worth to try is to enter bios and save settings. Sometime you need to change something in bios (and then put it back) for save to be effective.
Many BIOS have options where you can select whether it should stop on errors or not. Look for such an option and try disabling that.

Echo rindi, the non-Dell memory while detected is seen as in an error state and is likely not reflected as a available within the OS when loaded.
Stop on error none will stop the need to hit F1.

John's suggestion will get you you the added memory and will clear the issue.
