Is this your first time dealing with a POWER based system? If so, you're in for quite the project. Operation is very different from anything x86 based. Looks like your firmware is corrupt or you have hardware issues. Can you get into the BMC? I don't think the PNOR chip is socketed on most (or any for that matter) motherboards, so it might be hosed if you still have issues after reflashing it.
