Thanks for your reply. I have my system already upgraded to the correct BIOS version.
I had called up Intel support and they said that it would take time for the system to show the POST screen as the server board's new BIOS would check the board for,
- If the power supply is sending correct amount of voltage to the CPU & the other components on the board.
- If Memory is of the correct / proper config. required (frequency, ECC, unbuffered etc.)
- Various ports are working properly.
So, i am OK to that justification.
