Cannot boot without keyboard on raspberry pi 3 v1.2

OpenWRT will not boot unless i connect a keyboard and hit ENTER. There is no grub menu. Any idea on what setting needs to be configured to boot without the keyboard?

You do not need to have a keyboard or monitor hooked up to openwrt, You just power on your rasp and connect to it with another computer on the same subnet. Typically 192.168.1.1

Most people use a web browser such as firefox or they SSH into it with putty or something similar.
