I'm also getting this with a new S5000PSLSATAR server board and 2 new E5430 XEON CPUs. The lastest BIOS has been installed. I'm stuck as this server was meant to ship in a day or two, instead I'm now stuck with this problem which cannot be ignored because the BIOS will not display hardware virtualisation option required for Hyper-V to work.
Is there a fix for this, please Intel ???
I am also having this issue with the SR1560SFHS. Everything was fine until I updated to the latest BIOS. Has anyone come across a fix.
The error messages in the BIOS like 8160 etc. actually were due to the new CPU with the core stepping E0.
Actually, on most Intel server boards using a new CPU with E0 Core Stepping gave these error messages, but this has been fixed with the latest firmware
In the case of the SR1560SF, the latest firmware are:
System BIOS - 30
BMC Firmware - 9
FRUSDR Utility - 11
In the release notes, it mentionned something on the E0 stepping, so this bios has the fix. Make sure to read the read me file how to update the firmware.
For the S5000PSLSATAR, the new bios 91.6 and 94 fixed this issue.
Hope this information helps.
