Now I trying to use your OpenBMC port.

I followed the instructions and everything was fine (compiling, reading and flashing). I waited several minutes after flashing, but the module didn 't blinked like in the vendor rom, nor did it receive an ip.

I halted the system because I thought maybe it needs a cold start.

After this, the system doesn't boot with the module plugged in. The fans begin to spin for approximately 1/4 second, but nothing else.

My two fans (1 cpu & 1 chassis) have 3 pins and are low speed (~1000rpm)

In the case I have to reflash the module, is it possible to hotplug it?

Thank you very much for your support.

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.
