BIOS Recovery for S2600CO not working

0CI am trying to resurrect a S2600CO that stopped booting yesterday.

 

I have followed the instructions from /docs/DOC-3064 http://communities.intel.com/docs/DOC-3064 but have not been able to get BIOS recovery to work on the sick S2600CO. I get a blank screen, diagnostic LED pattern of 0xf9 (undocumented in http://download.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/s2600co/sb/g42278004_s2600co_tps_r1_2.pdf http://download.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/s2600co/sb/g42278004_s2600co_tps_r1_2.pdf, but seems to be related to BIOS recovery), 2 beeps (going into BIOS Recovery) followed by 4 beeps (BIOS recovery failed). I am using Intel BIOS 1.04. In my late attempt, I created a USB flash drive with the following files:

fvmain.fv - downloaded from

IFlash32.efi

R0061Rec.cap

Startup.nsh

Do you have any idea what I am going wrong?

I don't think the fvmain.fv file from S5500 series board will work on your S2600CO.

Instead, download the http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=22399&ProdId=3477&lang=eng Intel® Server Board S2600CO Firmware Update Package for Extensible Firmware Interface (EFI) and follow the instructions in ReleaseNotes_BIOS_01.06.0002.TXT.
