That is a strange one. Never had any issues with SELVIEW or SYSCFG loading.
They both use the IMBDVR so my guess would be that the driver did not get installed correctly somehow,
Try a driver reinstall by opening a command window and navagating to C:\Users\Administrator\Desktop\S5500_Windows_4_2\Windows_SYSCFG_V501_B25\InstallationEM64T
then run C:\Users\Administrator\Desktop\S5500_Windows_4_2\Windows_SYSCFG_V501_B25\InstallationEM64T\ Install.cmd \
(Don't forget the slash at the end to tell it the files are in this directory)
Down load the EFI Uttility package http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=18317&lang=eng
extract to USB key
reboot system & press F6 for boot menu
mount USB fob (FS0: most likley)
run SELVIEW from fob.
Yes, any IPMI tool can be configured to access and clear the SEL log, but it is a lot more work to explain than the first 2 options.
hmz, syscfg now works.
the problem is with selview, because when I try to install the driver I get:
"MSIPMI Driver detected. Skipping IMBDRV installation"
so my guess is that ms somehow installed some generic driver that isn't working very well the problem is I fail to find the ms name for it to uninstall ?
