I have a non booting s1200btl which stops in boot process with no display and following LED Status
ID Blue LED = off STATUS LED= Green then after about 1 minute flashing amber
LEDS: MSB 0101 1001 LSB
On/Off front panel switch works
Could someone please tell me what this means.
See the section on Intel® Light Guided Diagnostics in the S1200BT http://download.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/sb/g13326004_s1200bt_tps_r2_0.pdf Technical Product Specification.
Thanks for the reply. I had previously checked Rev1 of the document and that LED combination was not in there.
It is not in rev2 (much easier to understand) of the document to which you pointed either.
Behavior is as follows:
when AC is plugged into the server, cpu & chassis fan 4 run immediately and process stops at XOXO OXXO .with front panel power LED lit and fans still running.
If front panel power switch is pressed (and held for a few secs) the system shuts down as for a normally working machine.
When restarted using the front panel power switch, process stops at 0x10 xxxo xxxx Pei core starts.
Thanks / Regards
The LED code translates to a 59h. As you've indicated it's not in the diagnostic LED list. At this point we need to make sure you're using the right processor for your board revision. You can check that on the S1200BT http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/sb/CS-032414.htm Tested Processor List. Read the Notes at the bottom of the page.
Also verify the memory you're using is correct for the processor. See the Memory Subsystem section of the http://download.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/sb/g13326004_s1200bt_tps_r2_0.pdf Technical Product Specification for more information.
If everything there is correct, troubleshoot by removing the memory and see if you get the three beep "no memory" installed indicator. And then reducing the system to a minimum configuration to see if you can determine what (if not the board) may be causing the issue.
In an effort to better assist you with your inquiry, please provide more detailed information. Please confirm the set of LED you are getting with the behavior of the system.
Thanks for the reply.
In boot process i receive 3 beep and after 5 minutes PC restart itself, i mounted 32 GB (4x 8 Gb) 1333 MHz DDR3 ECC CL9 DIMM RAM and the CPU is XEON E3-1230 v2. I removed the other parts of the server. I have the same problem with a single slot RAM 8 GB or with 2x 8 GB.
The LED CODE is
ID Blue LED = off STATUS LED= on
LEDS: MSB 0101 1001 LSB
I read the document and that LED combination was not in there.
I checked the specifications of the memory and it meets the criteria for supported memory. At this point, I would recommend contacting our http://www.intel.com/p/en_US/support/contactsupport Intel Customer Support team for proper follow up of this case.
