    Not able to boot v480 system - "ERROR: FLASH copy error, index.."

    908946
      Update2: I believe the real offender is the bottom half (Slot B connector) of the center plane. It may have been damage when I reseated. Initially I just 1 soft error on 1 on the DIMMs. Isolation went like this:

      Start: 2 modules, 1 in slotA and 1 in slotB >boot = failed
      Remove module from slotA >boot = failed
      Moved module from slotB to slotA >boot = success

      +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

      Update1: It appears to be a problem with the memory. I was able to isolate one of the CPU/Memory module boards as the offender. I removed it and my V480 booted clean again.


      I think am getting the same error as mentioned in this old forum thread:
      v480 unable to boot system
      after reseating the CPU/Memory boards.

      Does anyone know what the resolution is for this error condition?
