I'm building a crazy workstation/server with a Gigabyte X79S-UP5-Wifi. I've put a Xeon E5-2670 on it and I've managed to make it boot just one time (and it was very unstable). Now it seems I'm into a Bios Loop and when the computer start, it look like this:
The board is basically brand new (and its a rev 1.0)
This seems to be a common problem on Dual Bios gigabyte board so their is a lot of peoples stuck with it. What I've tried so far:
1 Clear the CMOS
2 Remove the CMOS battery for 24h+
3 Try servals memory stick on every slots
4 Try to force the BIOS to restore with various techniques:
- Holding the power button while powering up the psu
- Shut down the system then holding the reset switch and the power button for 10sec
- Try a hard shutdown during post and then restart
Now I'm in the last case: Jumping pins of the bios and force it to restore...
So before doing that, maybe one of you guys have a better option to try!
Note: The only thing I didn't tried yet is to try another CPU, but I don't have any other lga2011 around... so....
