Intel Server Board E51974-405 does not boot into Operating System


My client does have a Intel Server board Part Number E51974-405 Serial Number AZGX03000432. They assigned to me install Windows Server 2016 on the server. This server was running Windows Server 2008. I installed Windows Server 2016 on the server from a USB drive. However, the server does not boots into the installed Windows Server 2016 OS.

I have also tried to install Linux CentOs on this server, to see if it will boot into the OS after installation. I experienced the same issue.

In addition, I also changed monitors and the issue have nothing to do with monitors.

Could you please assist me on why I am not able to boot into installed OS after successfully installing OS (either Linux or Windows) on this Intel Server Board.

I look forward to your repsonse.

Thank you
