Is the system completing the POST process? I am getting the impression it does but I would like to clarify it.
If so, what kind of error message do you get when attempting the BIOS update?
Now if the issue is that the unit is not completing POST, please provide us with the PBA of the board to determine if the revision of the board would support your processor out of the box.
To clarify the situation:
Troubleshooting Server Boot Issues (my answers):
1. I am building a system for the first time
2. My front panel has the green standby power LED lit
3. The chassis fans start spinning
4. I do not see anything (display is blank)
5. I do not hear any beeps.
As a result, they gave me a message that I wrote in the message above.
When I tried to update bios - while updating the screen it was empty, and the only thing that gave me the server is 4 beeps signal. Look for information about it, I found that it updates the BIOS error.
I hope I have given a full and correct picture of my problem.
P.S. Thanks for your help and your quick reply!
The board revision comes already with BIOS version 01.08.0003 which should support your processor. At this point, you should attempt doing firmware upgrade to version 02.01.0002. You may attempt performing a BIOS recovery process for this. If successful, then you may go to the most recent version 02.04.0003.
If the unit is still unable to POST after the BIOS recovery attempt, I would recommend contacting our Intel Customer Support team for further assistance on this matter.
Thanks for the answer!
It is strange that the server does not start again BIOS support available CPU ... hope BIOS update will solve the problem. Today definitely try to update the BIOS on the links of your recommendations and accomplish your goal according to the results.
Once again many thanks for the answer, help and spent time on me!
