If I were you, I put a video card to one of PCIe slot, because the VGA port is for AST2500 not for EPYC CPU.
Usually, we cannot access BIOS without a video card, but I am not sure about ROMED8-2T, because I have never tried to boot a PC without a video card.

deff, thanks for your quick answer.
I cannot find Molex PicoBlade, and Molex PicoBlade seems different from JST-GH, even though both have 1.25mm pitch

Inspired by this thread, I am trying to replace the fans of my SX6036F-1BRR with Noctua NF-A4x20 FLX (non-PWM) as attached pictures.
The 4-pin connector of the original fans and on the small board is small, and the 3-pin connector of NF-A4x20 FLX does not fit into the connector on the small...
If you directly connect the IPMI LAN port and your laptop with an ethernet cable, BMC does not get an IP address unless your laptop provides DHCP service.
Rather, I recommend connecting the IPMI LAN port to the router or switch of your LAN, so that one of the DHCP servers assigns a new IP...

I built my first EPYC workstation last week as described at https://forums.servethehome.com/index.php?threads/amd-epyc-7551-295-gbp.30786/page-4#post-288606
but I had experienced the same SATA drive recognition issue, in my case Ubuntu Server 20.04 which is a kind of Debian.

Inspired by this thread, I built my first EPYC workstation last week.
Instead of EPYC 7551, I purchased a used EPYC 7571 at $349.95 from https://centralvalleycomputerparts.com/amd-epyc-7571-ps7571bdvihaf-32-cores-2-2-ghz-socket-sp3-64mb-b-grade-cpu/
and built with ASRock Rack ROMED8-2T.
I had experienced the same issue with SX6036F last month. For my case, it looks that 15 seconds were not enough.
After struggling for a couple of days, I could reset the admin password by pushing the reset button for a couple of minutes patiently.
I hope so, but I cannot guarantee what happens when it is broken within the warranty.
At least, the serial number of the bare drive was accepted through product registration at seagate.com, and it says, "WARRANTY: Valid till 19/Jan/2024".

Only the third one is what I bought as Exos X16.
I bought 3 Seagate 16TB HDDs at Amazon in US this year. The first one is Expansion in summer, the second one is Expansion on Cyber Monday, and the last one is Exos X16 last week.
I extracted Exos X16 drives from two Expansion cases and successfully registered 3 ST16000NM001G drives as Exos X...
I am using a similar cable https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07RFLKJ54/ to SX6030 management console from Mac or Linux PC with screen command.
Since that cable has FTDI chip, I think it should work for your purpose.
