Getting rid of the auto loader

We have inherited a hamilton microlab star, but we’ve gotten constant errors in the initialization step (initialization position of auto load x drive not found or drive blocked). As far as I can tell, we don’t need the autoloader or barcode reader for our usage (basically just a lot of simultaneous 96-well pippetting). I’ve found instructions in the service manual to remove the auto load, but then I get error messages “initialization position of auto load Z drive not found or drive blocked”. Is there something I can change on the software end to tell the robot that we don’t have the autoload anymore?
