Hi, good day. I'm new to building server system.
Currently I'm installing a server by using the below parts:
- Intel S2600CP Server Board, (MM: 916040; Batch: CNQS44E5K1; Version: G41269-505)
- 2 x Intel XEON E5-2620V2 processors
- 8 x Kingston 8GB DDR3-1600 ECC KVR16LN11/8
However, I keep getting the error message when system boot up -- Invalid dimm population.
I try to install 4units of ram at slot A1, A2 & E1, E2; or even just A1 and E1 also fail to boot up. Can anyone help to resolve this issue?
Most likley you have bent a pin in the processor socket so that one of the x1 DINNS is not being seen.
Populate just the blue slots and see if you can boot to BIOS set-up.
It should show which bank is not being seen.
I had the same problem, and after some research I found out that the s2600CP4 board does not support 1600MHz UDIMMS, only up to 1333MHz UDIMMS. If you have registered dimms, it should not be a problem...
Hope this helps
