No, I haven’t tested it with a 12th gen before. This error happens with nothing connected to the front panel header FP_1. Googling for this error does not return much. I am buffled; apparently the BMC remotely sends NMI front panel interrupts to the cpu continuously, but why?
Thank you so much! When I used the jumper I had the power unplugged. Using the jumper with the power connected it worked after some seconds and the system is running since then.
I didn’t try this “fix” for 13th gen. Since I had to send the CPU back quite fast I didn’t have much time to invest here. I read it was not working because there was a newer kernel required, which will not be available before the next major release.
I did use this “fix” however and the iGPU (12th gen) can be selected in the Apps / Docker. If you’re going for Frigate, I had to invest some more hours there.
I tried to clear cmos this morning, but the board does not power up anymore! No bmc comes up, no lights, and the power button on the front panel does nothing. What a waste of money was this. I am going to RMA asap.
The good news: My new little server is happily up an running now.
To get there you need strong nerves. The whole thing was working fine. Power off. Moved it to its final location. Plugged-in a different USB Keybaord, a ZigBee Gateway and a UPS. And…it would not power on.
After waiting for an hour+, it eventually did.
Then, I added another NVME from my old server…Same story again…
Key message is: Do not change any hardware and you are fine ?!?
The BMC LED is blinking in such situations. But if you press the ID button, the blue LED won’t come on. That tells you that the BMC is not active/ready…
So after you connected power, did it automatically turn on and was just sitting there for 1 hour with the fans spinning and the BMC LED flashing 5secs on, 5 secs off? Or it did not turn on when you connected the power, but it would not turn on for 1 hour after the power was reconnected?
Whenever I make any h/w changes and then power on the board, the BMC seems stuck. The BMC LED is blinking, but the ID Button/LED is dead and the Mngt LAN is dead.
Keeping the board powered on in this state does not seem to help.
Completely powering it off (physical switch) and keeping it off for 1+ hour, seems to fix/heal something. If I then power on the board again, it takes some 20…30s, then there a beep (BIOS POST) and all seems good.
This is with a Seasonic FOCUS PSU, not sure if that matters (ATX Version, Standby Power, etc.) ?
This is the worst board I’ve ever had. I thought to go all fancy with IPMI and ECC for robustness/reliability, but I ended up with the exact opposite. I should have sticked to my 40euro a320 board, which was more reliable and did not make me feel I got ripped off. I hope Wendell does a followup video on this board because users might otherwise still think this is a good board
Quick update: My replacement board has no problems with the BMC at the moment. Power disconnect/reconnect= board powers on and boots. BMC status lights behave as expected.
Interestingly the replacement board seems to be older than my initial purchase. Board arrived with F05 bios. Tested initially with i5-12600K and older stick of ram, then updated bios and then i7-13700k and newer ram module. If something breaks I’ll report back here.
