I know this is a pretty dated server, but I have a friend that doesn't have much money to spare (kids) that needs a box to run Openfiler for his home VMware lab. I had bought the system to steal the cover, fan shroud, and a bunch of other non-critical parts for my SR2500 that I'm putting together.
Here is what I get:
Upon starting the system, the status LED on the front is green, and the diag LEDs on the back are all 4 amber (they stay amber no matter what).
About 5 seconds later I hear the fans slow down and the status LED on the chassis front goes amber (critical/non-recoverable according to Intel docs). The diag LEDs are still all amber. Nothing ever shows up on the screen, I don't get any beep codes, and none of the CPU or RAM fault LEDs illuminate.
Here is what I've tried, with no changes in the results:
Double checked all jumper settings
Resetting the BIOS both by jumper and removing the battery for 30mins
Force it to boot from ROM bank 0 via jumper
Tried booting without the riser cards in it
Tried booting with nothing connected to the board except power, fans, CPUs, and memory
Tried swapping out the memory sticks
I don't have high hopes for the system at this point.
