cannot start mpss service

 Dear All,

I install mpss-3.6.1 on CentOS 7, but cannot start mpss service:

        Job for mpss.service failed. See 'systemctl status mpss.service' and 'journalctl -xn' for details.

I also failed to update the flash and SMC firmware. Is it necessary after installing and need to connect to the Internet to do so? 

It is a C0 stepping SKU so I typed "micflash -update -device all", but several minutes later, such messages occur:

         mic0: Flash image: /usr/share/mpss/flash/EXT_HP2_C0_0391-02.rom.smc

         mic0: Flash update started

         micflash: micflash: mic0: Flash operation timed out due to a corrupted image file or an internal error.

         mic0: Transitioning to ready state

Then I used "micctrl –rw" to set mic to 'ready' state, and typed "micctrl --initdefaults" to set default configure.

The "micctrl --config" results are as below:

Hello,

Does your host computer support Intel(R) Xeon Phi(TM) coprocessors? please check with your OEM. Also, the BIOS must support memory mapped I/O above 4GB. Thank you.
