Still trying to figure out how to get the Serial over Lan to work.

I'll keep you posted.

SOL shows me exactly the same as my monitor does.

No extra logging to be seen unfortunately.

Hi all, 

 

I am hoping someone can please help me with an issue I am having,

 

I am currently running a HP MicroSvr Gen8 G1610T with DSM 5.2 and it works perfectly, but I have come to a point where I want to update to the latest DSM being 6.1 and have come across an issue, I have followed the tutorial to a tee, I will say first off.

 

I took out my 5.2 DSM bootloader USD and created a new bootloader using exactly the same USB stick

 

I have inserted the new bootloader and started the machine I made sure it was still booting from the USB port as the first selection in the bios, the system will boot and right away try booting from NIC which is the last selection in the Bios, even if I reboot and go into the boot menu and select boot from USB it will still try and boot from the NIC, it looks like the USB stick for some reason is not bootable

 

I do not any further than the machine trying to boot from the NIC

 

I have used both Win32diskimager and Rufus to create bootloader images

 

As soon as I put my original 5.2 bootloader back in, it will boot from that no issues at all

 

 

Please help guys

you might need to go the difficult path of attaching a serial port adapter to the onboard header.

I got it to work. It logs following:

 

[     0.017344] LAPIC pending interrupts after 512 ECI
[     0.032780] ..MP-BIOS bug: 8254 timer not connected to IC-APIC
[     0.362052] smpboot: APIC never delivered???
[     0.366314] smpboot: APIC never delivery error (ef)
[     0.683915] smpboot: APIC never delivered???

[     1.005760] smpboot: APIC never delivered???
[     1.010025] smpboot: APIC never delivery error (ef)

I'm not sure what to do about it unfortunately...

I removed the "quiet" kernel option from grub and added following:

"noapictimer acpi=off noapic"

 

This gives me attached output: 

 

output.txt

add big chunk of text as attachment instead of inline

something that jumps out to me is the lack of IRQ resources. In the bios, disable all unnecessary devices; parallel port, sound chip, com2,  (if present), additional USB controllers etc

I tried disabling all unnecessary devices, but the result stays the same.

 

If I keep the "noapictimer acpi=off noapic" options I get the same output as before.

If I only use the "acpi=off" I get the output in output_noapci.txt.

And without any added options I get the output in output_reg.txt

 

The last one seems to be the best option, but I can't figure out why it freezes at "xor: measuring software checksum speed".
