W2600CR2 has two SKUs, W2600CR2 (normal SKU) and W2600CR2L (Lite SKU). The only difference is that the Lite SKU doesn't have I/O module slot, and it was only available for a limited time. Both SKUs use same BIOS package.

Your PBA# indicates your board is normal SKU. However, it seems it's an early pre-production board. What is your current BIOS version?

Production BIOS string should start with "SE5C600.86B". 86B is used for Intel branded server board. Seems your board revision is too old to use production BIOS.

Thank you edwardzh for your help,

If I understand correct, that only way to flash the bios its via recovery mode or via jtag.

Since that I can flash BMC in regular mode and BNC working well after it, I guess that production bios will work.

The problem:

1. or where I can find rml.rom for my current bios for recovery options

2. where I can find jtag interface scheme for connection and what type of bios chip inside?

Can you help me with it please
