Since you have a very old backplane firmware, try this and let me know how it goes.
Try Incremental Firmware Update;
Download and extract this package on your USB Bootable Stick
Boot onto the USB and run the batch file
If it works, then upgrade to the firmware version 2.09
Hopefully if everything is still fine, then update to the 2.11
If none of them works, let me know these things below so that i can help you further.
- HSC firmware
- Cable connected from the backplane to the board.
- Error Code
All the best,
