Default Not booting after unplugging graphics card

Today I unplugged a graphics card from one of the computers I built last summer (preparing for building a new one), but after that it wouldn't boot. It is an ASUS P4S800. I did change the BIOS setting "Halt on" to No errors, but it doesn't help. I run another mobo, ASUS P4S8X-X without graphics card with no problems. Is it normal and common that a motherboard doesn't boot without a graphics card?

If it were, most of those GIMPS/SETI/@home farms wouldn't exist. But your board could be a fluke where they decided to add that feature. It makes sense considering that without a video card you can't see anything and most people aren't building gigantic DC farms.

From my understanding, many boards require a video interface to boot. The ability to run headless, diskless, and without keyboard are features that the farmers look for. My Pentirm 90 and 200MMX would stop, I think that I could even find the proper beep code that says there is a vid problem.

This is one of the many reasons why I continually recommend Intel branded motherboards... They have excellent documentation and most of them will boot without a video card... Finding out before you buy is very easy because all the manuals are online, and Intel *always* has a specific section for headless booting...
