Hello Stefffen,

 

 

Support for this http://ark.intel.com/products/48247/Intel-Modular-Server-Chassis-MFSYS25 Intel® Modular Server Chassis MFSYS25 is limited to the website.

 

 

If the operational firmware image of the Intel® Modular System MFSYS25 Management Module (CMM) is corrupt, the CMM is unable to boot to Linux*. The CMM contains Emergency Boot Firmware (EBF) that allows the administrator to update the operational image regardless of the state of the current image. The following process uploads a new operational code image to the CMM.

 

 

Please make sure you are trying to reformat the SD card and at the "CMM EBF" prompt, type:

 

 

set manufacture on sd format exit

 

 

If you see the boot process, but cannot get the EBF prompt, note that the serial cable or USB to serial cable must be a fully populated straight-through cable. Specifically, it must allow the host PC to assert the CTS pin on the CMM.

 

 

Additionally, you could refer to http://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/server-products/server-systems/MFSYS25_CMM_... MFSYS25 Emergency CMM FW Recovery for more information.

 

 

Please let us know if you have any further questions.

 

 

Best regards,

Hello Stefffen,

 

 

The possible scenarios will be the following:

 

 

1. SD card not seated properly

 

2. SC card not installed properly

 

3. Defective SD card

 

 

For 1 and 2 you need to reseat SD card properly and retry

 

For 3 no other option than replace with a good known SD card

 

 

Hope this helps.
