How to enable auto-boot (power outage restart)?

HP Recommended
HP EliteDesk 800

I have looked in the BIOS -> Advanced -> Power options, but I am not seeing any setting for auto-boot or anything like it.  Does anyone have any idea how to find this feature?  I have a brand new HP Elite Desk 800.

I don't know what generation Elitedesk 800 you have...G4, G5, but here is the service manual for the G5:


You can find the setting you need to enable in the Advanced menu>Boot Options> After Power Loss. Default is Power Off. 

Change the setting to  Power on—causes the computer to power on automatically as soon as power is restored. 


Save the settings and exit the BIOS.


Refer to chapter 6, page 103.


If you don't have an Elitedesk 800 G5, then please post the generation you have.
