Sun ultra 40 boot problem AMD Opteron
Aug 9, 2010 10:04 AM
my Sun Ultra 40 will not boot, it is an AMD Opteron based machine, the cooling fans are spinning, but there is no msg to read on the monitor.
Occasionally I got it to boot, it ran for two weeks, but at next reboot it displays no signal to the video card.
I spotted this in the manual
During POST, the BIOS outputs the error code to I/O port 80h. The workstation
motherboard is equipped with a two segment LED display that displays the current
value of port 80h.
but I cannot get the glue in it, maybe because I have opteron AMD and this is targeted to sparc.
Last error msg I read was like this:

Default configuration used
Press <F1> to resume, <F2> to setup
what can I do? is the motherboard faulty? How can I get it to boot from CD
and run a system diagnosis?
What mainboard is compatible? should I replace it with a newer mainboard + CPU + RAM?
Will it fit in the Sun Ultra 40 desktop tower?
