Hello friends, over the past few months I've been trying to get this new build to work but nothing seems to work and the lack of debug output doesn't help.
But after purchasing an internal VGA to normal VGA adapter on ebay for $30 (as there was no video out using a PCIe card) I've managed to confirm the BIOS version and that it supports the CPUs. But also that it never gets past the identification screen.
The system LED goes from solid green, to flashing green, to flashing amber, and finally solid amber. Only the LSB is set for the POST debug LEDs which doesn't tell me anything. http://download.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/sb/g34153004_s2600ip_w2600cr_tps_rev14.pdf http://download.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/sb/g34153004_s2600ip_w2600cr_tps_rev14.pdf The solid amber erros are listed as follows:
My system configuration are as follows:
Board: W2600CR (PBA: G59236-301)
Memory: 4x4Gb Registered ECC PC3-10600
CPU: Dual E5-2660v2
PSU: Corsair AX1200 (No PMBus)
Bootable media: A 16Gb USB3 flashdrive, a 60Gb Samsung Evo SSD and an old 640Gb 2.5" HDD, each with Debian installed.
Hopefully you guys can explain what some of these possible errors mean and how I can debug them further.
