a400 boot problem.

By tbragsda ·
All,

Picked up a refurb a400 for our test system. On opening the box, the server would not boot at all. I found a loose power connection to the MB, and fixed. Now, it will not boot through to Boot Menu. Getting this.

I DID get it to boot to menu once, then this. I can get to GSP fine, and read lots of repeats of this error. Looking around, I think it may be firmware problem, but not sure I can rule out hardware.

Any thoughts?
