HP Z230 Tower Workstation cannot boot without a monitor plugged in.

HP Recommended
HP Z230 Tower Workstation
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have an HP Z230 Tower Workstation that I use for work. Since I don't have a KVM, I use Windows Remote Desktop from my personal computer to my work computer in to avoid unplugging my monitors and keyboard to my work computer.


The problem is, if I need to reboot my work computer, it does not boot when a monitor is not plugged into it. If I turn it on or it reboots with no monitor plugged in, it beeps consistently for about 5 mins and refuses to boot to windows. This is especially annoying since I have to unplug my monitor from my personal computer to my work computer to get it to boot to Windows.


I have checked the BIOS and could not find a setting that disables this horrible and unnecessary feature. Is there any way to disable it?
