    If bootorder is set to N what happens? How does the unit boot?

    The Bootorder parameter directly influences the BIOS setting for the bootorder.
    Bootorder=N means that the first bootdrive is set to Nothing/disabled. Normally you have to enter three letters to reflect all three bootoptions.
    Using only one will result in Bootorder=xNN. This means that the last one or two letters are always filled with “N”s.
    If you do not want the unit to PXE at startup the best wouold be to use
    Bootorder=HNN. (Harddrive/None/None)

    Wow! The manual certainly didn’t explain that. Thank you! Now what would happen if you specified NNN?

    Never tried but I assume the device will boot up with an error that there is no boot device present.

    Then there would be no way to recover. It would become a brick!

    No, It wouldn’t be a brick as you can always go in the BIOS and revert the settings manually.
