“The server might be in POST” after upgrading

Recommended Posts

So I finally had time to upgrade my hp micro server gen 8. Switched to the 1265 v2 and 16 gb ram. but when booting up the fan goes to Max speed and it shows the old cpu and ram still? Seems like I forgot to shut it off properly before upgrading. 

I can’t seem to find how to reset this.

There is a switch setting on the server board that will clear all settings. I do not recall which switch it is.

Maybe it's a problem on the new hardware you've added.
Try putting just one bank of RAM.
Try reassembling the original CPU and all the RAM banks.
So you should identify which hardware added has problems.
When I replaced the Xeon E3-1260L CPU and 16GB of RAM on my server I had no problem and no reset, the hardware was recognized at first boot.

I had the same problem today after sticking in a 1260L, cured by removing the non HPE ram and then rebooting. After it had rebooted properly, shut down added the ram back and its working fine.
