Ok, now I understand that R210 II BIOS file is not compatible (ie:
"tag-compatible") with my R210 II EOM
I have a pending ticket @ Dell for that.
The reason I need to try updating the BIOS is because it hangs on
"testing memory" for 4min when I plug a CORSAIR VOYAGER GT 16GB in any
usb slot at initial cold boot. After that "hang" time, the stick is not
detected until the server is hot-rebooted (Ctrl+Alt+Suppr), after what
all going fine.
Means, if there is a power loss, the server doesn't reboot by itself on
the stick !!!
I have two thread opened for that:
I am waiting for a phone call back from Dell ....
PS: We have no choice on the stick model
If anyone is able to help, you're welcome !!!
