Re: rx7640 error on cell



you can reset/clear NVRAM of the cell by isolating/removing the PDH battery on the cell for a minute.

Remember that you'll erase all NVRAM settings on that cell like CLM (cell local memory), fpar and acpiconfig. And if it is a partition core cell it will even lose RTC (real time clock) settings and the boot options.

So you may save these settings before you clear NVRAM.



Kind Regards

Re: rx7640 error on cell

Can you share the console output showing where the boot process stops?
