Matts video gives a really good overview of what vRNI can do, and I think by watching his video it will help you plan out what you’d like it to do for your environment.

Gigabyte MX31-BS0 – ROM Image is Not Loaded | ROM Image Update Denied Error

Posted on Updated on

Recently, I mothballed my 3 x Gev IV servers in replacement of my new home lab.  Being they were just lying around, I wanted to find a use for them.  I decided to use one as a Sophos UTM firewall.  The motherboard is the Gigabyte MX31-BS0 and it should work quite well for that purpose.  However, after powering up the server it beeped with 2 Beeps followed by 4 Beeps, then the server would boot to BIOS and go to the Recovery Page displaying this message – ‘ROM Image is Not Loaded. ROM Image Update Denied Error.’

Looking up the beep codes this indicated a ‘Recovery Started’ and ‘S3 Resume failure’

Things I tried –

  • Reset BIOS back to default settings
  • Ensured all BIOS settings were correct and enabled (per various blog posts)

These things didn’t resolve the issue. I started to think about flashing the BIOS but didn’t, and then it hit me what if there was a jumper miss-match? Its not likely, being I’ve had this system working for quite a while.

The Very Simple Solution –  For some reason jumper #4 was missing, I simply replaced the jumper and the system booted normally.   I can only guess it came loose at some point and fell off.  I could also see how someone installing the RAM could have bumped it loose.

Wrap up – I know this solution seems hardly deep enough content for a blog post, but when I was searching for suggestions I never found one suggesting to check your jumpers.

If you like my ‘no-nonsense’ videos and blogs that get straight to the point… then post a comment or let me know… Else, I’ll start posting really boring content!
