Well, in the case of the system log of the board I received, there were tons of over-temp messages, so I'm assuming these sat somewhere with minimal cooling and/or the fans on the cases failed and they just cooked.Wow, for the guys that purchased multiple boards can you imagine why so many bad ? Could it be the seller purchase bulk random stuff in an auction and these boards are all warrently returns where some are actually broken and some just returned but not ?
It hangs at 06 no matter what I do. I already reflashed the bios and the BMC. No change in behavior.06 is very early in the post process.
Had a Supermicro that hang at 04. The cause was a dead oscilator for the BMC.
In theory it shouldn't wait for it, but it did.
states micro code loading.
I suggest a bios flash through the ipmi.
EDIT, besides the general debuging.
For instance, does it hang at 06 without Ram?
Once I had an X9SCM-F or X9SCL-F with a bad BMC - it wouldn't boot fully, and the VGA output was all messed up, but using the BMC disable jumper, the VGA out was a lot better, and the board worked great thereafter. (Minus the BMC features of course obviously)
