Ok, thank you for the clarification.

I thought the connector was needed to program the module.

I have an ASMB4-iKVM. I think it's this, although it has two stickers and I can not see the concrete model

Ok.. flashing is done with your flashrom version. Sorry for not reading the whole instructions.

I will try it in a few days.

Thank you for your help and all the amazing work you are doing.

To try the OpenBMC port you don't need to solder anything; you just need
to find an ASMB4-iKVM module and program it.  Soldering is for if you
want access to the JTAG connector for low-level development (U-Boot
development, mostly).


The ASMB5-iKVM also works from a hardware perspective, but both may be
hard to find as the KGPE-D16 and the Opterons it uses are now out of

Yes, I cleaned the CPU before but it's obvious it wasn't shiny :-) .

I want to try your OpenBMC port. I readed I have to solder the 20 pin

Pin 1 is the squared shape, isn't it? But which is Pin 1 in the female

Good to hear.  I was going to mention bad CPU but that seemed unlikely;
on this end we always make sure the CPU contacts are shiny before
attempting boot so that could explain the discrepancy.

Thank you for your reply Timothy.

I removed the heatsink and cleaned the cpu contacts.

Now it boots.

Thank you for your support.

   The fact that the vendor BIOS won't post is a very bad sign, since in
our experience the vendor BIOS is far more forgiving of faulty DIMMs
than coreboot (basically, the vendor BIOS will show something on the VGA
port even if the DIMMs are completely damaged and unable to properly
store data).

I recently bought an Asus KGPE-D16 board, with an Opteron 6238 and 4
Micron MT18JSF25672PDZ-1G4F1DD modules.

Firstly I tried to boot with vendor BIOS but I don't get any output
on VGA.

I have a PCI Post Card and it seems it arrives to 3E and then I
think it
enters in a loop.

I flashed Coreboot with default settings just to try to get some more
useful logs. The result I think is more or less the same, it doesn't
arrive to payload.

Memory is installed in A2,B2,C2 and D2 slots.

I spent multiple hours trying to figure where is the problem.

Do you have any ideas?

I attach the console log.

Thanks in advance.
