Gen 8 stuck on Maintenance switch error


Recommended Posts

Hi All.


Was installing Server 2012 R2 Essentials to my SSD drive, using built in HP Config software.


Seemed to be going well, until is showed the following error

Maintenance Switch detected in the "On" position.

Power off the server and turn the switch to the "off" position.


Strange thing is that nothing had changed, so no idea why this error would come up.


After checking the service manual, I located the dip switches for the Maintenance switch. All dips switches are set to off.


I'm unable to get into the bios as the error comes up after the Early System Initialization screen comes up, then followed by the HP splash Screen then this error.


Is my unit faulty?
