Re: Microserver Gen8 start fail

There is no BIOS found!

You could try to set the maintenance switch to clear nvram first and check ilo again. Maybe the board is bad now.

Re: Microserver Gen8 start fail

Since both BIOS ROMs are bad, I assume the systemboard is bad and needs replacement.


Hope this helps!
