update - I've tried re-downloading 101,66,48 and applying. No different. No unusual results during the process. no errors or failures while upgrading.
Upon completion, exact same state.
ok - now I have 2 boards doing the exact same thing. Grabbed another machine, ran through the bios upgrade process (re-downloaded code and followed the directions exactly), and am in the exact same state with the second board. I am missing something simple or there is something wrong with the code available for download.
What is the part number on the top of the processors?
Should be a Sxxxx or a Qxxxx
Just re-read your posting.
You get POST with a video card, but not on the on board video. Very strange.
Sounds like you may have killed the BMC.
I would try a BMC recover as exolained in the TPS section 6 http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/s5000psl/sb/CS-022619.htm?wapkw=intel+server+board+s5000psl
