Upgraded from Opteron dual 6128 > dual 6272 --> STRANGE PROBLEMS!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hopefully you guys can give me some pointers.

I just swapped out two Opteron 6128s from a Windows 7 (with SP1) system that was running fine. I replaced them with two 6272s.

The Asus MB POSTed just fine. I got my Windows splash page, but as soon as it is about to load the desktop, the system reboots.

Then it goes into the "run system repair" message from Windows. I say, sure, why not. But THAT ends up rebooting before it actually does its thing.

Then I have the computer boot from DVD to my Windows Ultimate DVD to do a fresh install. It loads, gives me the little progress bar thing at the bottom. And then JUST as it's shows the mouse arrow and is about to load the user agreement page, it reboots.

I have the latest BIOS (v2006) on the MB.

Any ideas? The computer gets through POST just fine. Seems to be a Windows problem. ???

The latest BIOS is 2102, so try that.

Simple check. Did you bent any CPU pin? Did you properly install the cooler?

Well, maybe it's not Windows. Something else is going on. I cannot load my Linux Ubuntu or Windows XP. Same thing happens right around the same time for both.

In Ubuntu I got an error message that displayed, but it wasn't on the screen long enough to write it down.

They all seem to be forced to reboot just before loading the desktop.

Any ideas where to even start trouble shooting?

2102 fixes a bug regarding non-ECC RAM, so flash it with that first. Also check to see if you bent any CPU pin.

I'd go with this one. Seems legit.

Also remove all but one cpu and ram and start with that and get it stable. Then add more ram and second cpu until problem comes back. Problem found.

Did all that and still had the problem.

But I got the fix! Thanks everyone for your help.

Bye.



Ok, ok, I'll post the answer for those reading this later. smile.gif

For whatever reason, when I went through the bios, it had reverted the setting back to use ECC ram. I'm using 64GB or NON-ECC ram. I updated the bios a long time ago and it ran fine with the 6128 chips. Who knows why when I put the 6272 chips in it freaked out with the exact same bios settings it had before the switch.

I disabled the "use ECC ram" setting (or whatever it's called), and we're in business. Two 16-core chips are recognized in Windows and we're ready to do some major rendering with those 32-cores!

Thanks everyone!

So you have non ECC RAM, and BIOS enable ECC settings? That makes sense.
