The space bar was to detect the baud rate.

I think that there was as dip switch setting for autoboot on or off.  The
boot prompt was coming from the ROM, not from HDOS, and there are different

Subject: [sebhc] HDOS boot/space bar question.

Does anyone know what makes HDOS decide if it needs the user to press
space bars before booting? I heard that it was to detect the baud rate
between the computer and terminal, but only some of my disks require
that, even though they are all ver. 2.0. I was thinking that a bunch
of my disk were bad since they weren't booting, until I remembered
about the 'space bar' thing.  Also, if I remember correctly, there is
a way to make HDOS just boot, instead of presenting the <BOOT>
question. How can you change it?  My final question is about HDOS
capitalizing everything. A few of my disks decide that everying must
be capitalized, how do I change that?
