i have a s5000pal it has 8gigs of ram (2 4gig sticks), 2 Pentium zeon processors, thermaltake 1500w powersupply tough brand, and a 2 tb wd green harddrive, i had it running two months ago, with windows 7 ultimate 64 bit, but it was running really rough, and the brand new harddrive i had in it was going bad, now i have got a new harddrive and wanted to start from scratch, but when i went to reset the cmos, i acidently did the bmc force update instead, now when i power up, the lights come on and the fans blow, but nothing happens, it use to make a beep noise apon start up, but that doesnt even happen, the dvd ROM has now power unless i unplug the ide cable, can any one help me get it back up and running? thank you for your time and effort in this matter,
Did you revert back the jumpers for the BMC force update ? When the jumpers are back, start with the plain old setup with a processor, memory & see if it goes through POST. If it does, I suggest you perform a firmware update that is available here. Also notice that you are using a third party chassis with this board, please do check if the power connectors are appropriately connected to the server board. Goodluck !
