tlrI have been trying to get a S1200BTLR board working for over 1 week, with no luck and no video.
That latest attempt was using Kingston "Intel Verified" DIMMs - part no: KVR1333D3E9SK2/8GI (with Hynix chips). I get the same result as with the KVR1333D3E9SK2/8G DIMMs (with Elpida chips).
If ANYONE has been able to get one of these boards to work, I would really like to see the list of parts they used.
I must have had a defective board. I sent it back for RMA and replaced it with a different board with a C204 chipset. Using the same components as the S1200BTLR, the new board worked immediately and I have not had any problems.
I will try using the same DIMMs you did on my S1200BTL (not R) when I have time.
