I am setting up a DQ77MK with an E3-1230V2 as an ESXi host. I am using a PCI video card, Radeon 7000. Bios is 058. I was playing with bios settings but didn't get a stable system, so I loaded default bios settings. After that, I managed to install ESXi on an Intel 525 mSATA 30GB SSD. Upon reboot, I got the two beeps twice. Video card issue. I tried a bunch of trouble-shooting tips and always received the two beeps twice. I installed a Core i3-3225 and that got me into the bios. The event log showed: "Video OptionRom authenticate fail", with 13 count. What to do? shouldn't this board boot, even without video, keyboard and mouse connected?
A couple of items I suspect based on my research, 1: Intel TXT? disabled. and 2: UEFI boot vs legacy boot? (Both are enabled)
Anyone see an issue like this? I need to use the Xeon because of Vt-d support.
