Alienware 15 R2 - Battery failure messages boot

Dear all, Every time I switch on my Alienware (Alienware 15R2 - Bios 1.6.1) I have to press twice F1 since there are two messages informing me that the battery is not working anymore. I am disappointed with the battery but I don't want to replace it and I use my laptop only under charge. I would like to know if there is a way to boot the laptop without pushing twice F1 and without any battery check (so directly windows), so that I don't waste time waiting for the messages. Thank you

Remove the battery from the system.  The error messages cannot otherwise be suppressed.

I wanted to avoid that, apparently I have to remove many components (including the motherboard) before removing the battery in my Alienware.

Hi @carlopro,

You can just disconnect the battery cable.
