It doesn't exist if you use v2 CPUs though. So if you have access to that then you can essentially get rid of that bug.I can't believe they blundered something that badly.
Perfect. Thanks for the info. Mine would arrive next week. I'm shopping for video cards so this helps.Hahaha. I was thinking if it really was firmware or you were asking something specific.
I just use the latest S2600CP4 firmware. There's a guide in this thread for the downgrade and I can do it perfectly well so I'm not really afraid of it. The GPU doesn't work well with the downgraded firmware anyway. I don't think it even boots.
I'm ordering 2650 v2 *2, just curious would I be able to directly boot off a NVMe drive (960 evo probably)?I have been trying to get this to work without success, I'm guessing it is probably some BIOS setting I am missing. First, I am not trying to make the NVMe device boot the system. I'd just like to be able to use the drive as a storage device.
The setup S2600CP2J board with 2xE5-2670v1, 128gb ram. Nothing else attached. Boots fine to EFI shell or from USB device.
Insert Samsung 950 EVO NVMe M2 device in a PCIe adapter Amazon.com: Lycom DT-120 M.2 PCIe to PCIe 3.0 x4 Adapter (Support M.2 PCIe 2280, 2260, 2242): Computers & Accessories and the machine freezes during POST. The code it freezes at should be a Memory User Error (PMIE which detected User Recovery Condition). The weird thing is if I try to interrupt the bootup and go to setup, I can as long as it is before that step. From there it boots fine into EFI shell and I am able to see the NVMe device as a block device(which I was super surprised by).
Normally I'd figure this is something wacky with the device or the adapter, but when I put it into another system, it works flawlessly (E5-2670 based SunFire 4170-x3). And even when I put it into an older system which shouldn't support it at all it was still working as a block device albeit at reduces speeds since it was in a PCIe v2 slot (E5540 based SunFire 4170 system).
Anyway I thought I'd just ask to see if anyone else had a similar issue on this board or anything else. I'm going to toss a post over to the Intel forums as well. Sounds like a BIOS problem to me
Wow. I wasn't expecting a bios update for S2600 boards.I'm ordering 2650 v2 *2, just curious would I be able to directly boot off a NVMe drive (960 evo probably)?
Thanks for all the comments on this thread! Helped a lot!
(Just installed 1080ti..thank god updated BIOS. now running newest BIOS from July 2017)
Been there, solved itGreat, long life thread. I have been able to get a Samsung 950 to boot but cant realy get around to getting it configured right in UEFI boot mode. Any suggestions?
