You don't have to press the check button to "use" the ok prompt.
Pressing <esc> when the chime sounds and it will drop to ok.
You can abuse the TS mfg tag to permanently disable pretty boot. Pretty
boot is disabled if TS != SHIP so:
ok change-tag TS show
will make pretty boot disabled always until you change the tag. 'show'
can be any 4 letters it just has to be the same length as 'SHIP' or
change-tag won't work. Could could also delete-tag TS and then add-tag
TS <somestring>. Just don't use the strings 'SMT', 'ASSY, 'FINAL' or
'RUNIN' as they will cause various stages of the manufacturing procedure
to try and run.
