- Were you able to successfully upgrade the CISCO and BIOS?
This event reported when the server stuck at "Configuring and testing platform hardware" is more likely seen when bios was corrupted.
As you mentioned after resetting the BIOS the issue persits, Do you mean the CMOS battery was re-seated. If not have you attempted to reset the CMOS?
Thanks for you reply everybody. I traced the problem to a usb HD I plugged into the UCS for a VM that was using it for log storage. I know this sounds weird but, when i unplug the USB HD the UCS boots just fine. If it's plugged in it doesn't not boot at all. The BIOS/CMOS doesn't come up. Once the server is up it runs just fine and USB HD can be plugged in and used effectively.
I'm not sure why this behavior is happening. I would assume that any device plugged into the USB would be just fine for boot up.
Maybe there is a way i can have CMOS/BIOS ignore the USB during boot.
