Greetings,
I just ebayed one of these for $50, installed e5-2680v4 and 32GB of RAM. When I tried to boot, I get stuck with a black screen that says:
"System Booting
This BIOS is compatible for 9215H0
BIOS version: v0.003

(then in the bottom last line it says "Waiting for BMC initialization"

I never managed to get past that since after a minute or so, the system shuts down. Any insight or advice is greatly appreciated.,
Disable the BMC via jumper. If it boots then reflash the BMC.

Do you mind posting which seller you purchased from? I checked sold listings and didn't see any that close to your price point or that show were sold less than list or had offers. Did the seller accept a Best Offer?

I got it from seller ocean-tech. I did best offer and was able to get it for $50, shipping free.

It came with two optional boards: a tyan-branded sas2 controller (giving an additional 2x SFF-8088 to the built-in 2x SFF-8088) and a mellanox cx4 40Gb 1xSPF connection. there are a total of 6xmini-sas3/SFF-8643 ports built-in, all labeled as PCIe_SSD1,2,4,5,6,7. There's also a TPM module installed.

Between all these SAS ports and the two 10GBe NICs, this would make a killer NAS mobo for a little over $100 (I have 2xE5 -2680 v4's and 128GB of ECC DDR4 I paid about another $50 total for).

Unfortunately I'm stuck at the boot screen as reported above and haven't been able to find the "disable BMC" jumper @Fritz was talking about.

I'm not familiar with this board so I don't know if it has a disable BMC jumper or not. But all Supermicro MBs do.

I picked one of these up but have no use for the motherboard. If someone wants the motherboard and is fine compensating for shipping, PM me and we can work something out.

Gone.

I would like to give a huge shoutout to @ribroc . The conversation with him was very smooth and easy, the board arrived very well packed, with all extras (heatsinks, OCP network card, etc), and all of it at the cost of shipping.
I'm still waiting for processors (from a different source), but hopefully I will be able to fire up the board soon.
