Supermicro H8SCM-F MB


Post by rbendorf » 18 Oct 2016 17:07

Has anyone used a Supermicro H8SCM-F motherboard with N4F? I just bought one with an Opteron 4170 CPU. I have installed N4F on the system and it boots up without a problem. My initial reason was to build a backup server for my collection of videos and music.

I have a Dell Perc h310 flashed to IT mode that I want to use in the setup. When I try to boot up the system, I just get a bunch of beeps and nothing happens. I have also tried a Dell Perc h200 unflashed and the system will boot with no problem...essentially the H310 and the H200 are same controller (SAS 2008).

I am wandering if the SAS 2008 in IT mode is just not compatible with AMD chips, or am I doing something wrong.

Thanks in advance for any help or insights.

I used formerly a Dell Perc H310 unflashed with an AMD CPU/Mainboard and now with Supermicro X9SCM-F/i3-2100 combination without a problem. I know this this strongly discussed in the forum but I don't see the need to flash the Controller to IT mode and encurage all to try it first with out, but of course with no configuration on the Raid-Hardware Controller.
Can you try to flash it to the original mode at a different computer and try again ?
