I plugged my USB to the thumb USB drive that is in center of the server.
Please help ..
also, Keyboard and mouse doesn't working. they couldn't recognize too.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Are you trying to recover the BIOS using the recovery jumper? If not, try recovering the BIOS this way ( see link below)
Also, are you using the recovery.cap file of the current firmware version installed on this server?
Thank you for your assistance!
It is recognized the recovery.cap file, and recovery is successfully completed.
But the server is repeating the bios recovery continuously.
The bios jumper is on 1, 2.
When I put out the USB stick, the message displayed "couldn't find recovery.cap" again.
Do I need another steps?
Do you think its main board problem?
Yes, it is possible that it is hardware related. Before trying to replace any hardware try to reset the CMOS back to default by removing the cmos battery for about 10 minutes (no power cables). Also try to remove any other PCI/Mezzanine adapter from the server to make sure these are not causing any issues.
Also why are you putting the USB back if the recovery was successful? After you move the jumper back to position 1 and 2 remove the USB and see if the server boot properly.
