    I just put together a new box with a P4C800-E Deluxe, and on boot, I
    couldn't even get into setup. The CPU fan I was using didn't support speed
    monitoring, and I had the cover off, so was getting the case intrusion
    error. Both (or either) of these errors were enough keep the box form
    booting (fatal error).

    After taking care of these error, I was able to boot, but I couldn't find
    anything in setup to tell the bios not to halt on all errors. Am I missing
    something, or is this not an option with this BIOS?

    Every bios I have looked at has had this on the first page in the bios menu
    at the bottom.
    (IE Asus Bios).
    Case intrusion on by default is a PIA.

    Yeah, me too. I don't see it anywhere in this BIOS. The only mention of
    errors is whether or not to wait for F1 after each error. Neither way makes
    a difference. I don't even see an indication of what will halt the boot
    (usually there's a Halt On All>, All but...>, None, etc., but I can't see
    anything in this BIOS. Maybe I'm staring at and just not seeing it
    (wouldn't be the first time).
    Yeah, especially if it's a 'fatal' error. I shouldn't have bothered hooking
    up the switch, but the wires were dangling there in front of me, so I
    figured, what the hell.
