    H12SSL-I Stuck at "bmc initiating"

    Hi All! A green hand here. I bought an OEM H12SSL-I to set up my first server. It was working fine until some meddling with the bios. Result? It cannot boot up and stays at "bmc initiating" forever! Now, I can't enter bios or ipmi console no matter how I tried. Any advise to make it work again?
