All PC's boot without a monitor... it's old Macs that don't boot 
without a display on the sense pins... something that can be fooled 
with a Mac to VGA adapter.

All PC's I know of won't boot without a video card.  (I've heard there 
are rare exceptions, but most machines will just BEEP really loudly 
without a VGA adapter)

Many PC's don't boot without a keyboard attached.
