Question about SUPERMICRO COMPUTER Supermicro X8DTU-F Server Motherboard - Intel Chipset (MBDX8DTUF)

1 Answer

We just purchased Supermicro 1026T-URF SuperServer: X8DTU-F motherboard. Added Intel X25-E Extreme (Ephraim) SSDSA2SH032G1 2.5" 32GB SATA SSD drive and attached a SAS storage via Areca ARC-1880ix-12-4G PCI-Express card. The problem is - the server won't boot from CD or USB. It boots up, goes through the tests, sees the RAID on SAS storage - no errors. In BIOS it sees both the SSD and the RAID and it does see CDROM and USB drive (when inserted). After the harware check it goes to a blank black screen with the cursor blinking at the upper-left corner. SuperMicro support suggested a couple of basic solutions - like changing the boot order, but couldn't help. I have a feeling that the mother board is fine - no beeps, hardware check is fine... I night need to tweak the BIOS settings but, besides the obvious ones, I don't know which settings. Any thoughts? Thank you! Suvie55

Make sure the DVD is plugged into the left most SATA connector on the motherboard. ( I-SATA0 )
Make sure SATA1 is set to "Compatability" in the BIOS.
Do not use "Enhanced" for SATA1.
Make sure the Primary IDE setting is CD/DVD in the BIOS.
Do not use "Auto"

On the USB problem, Make sure Legacy USB is disabled in the BIOS.
WARNING! The default is, Legacy USB " Enabled".

What ssd do I buy for the acer ac700 atom?


Hi Baaz,

You would need an SSD that has a port for Serial ATA (SATA) 3 Gb/s. A faster one would do, but it will still run under 3 Gb/s. This is because the chipset on your motherboard can only prvide the max speed of 3Gb/s

For the pins, Serial ATA AKA SATA have the same ports, either SATA1,2, or 3

Hope this helps.

I have an asrock 775vm8 motherboard. Can I install a ssd drive?


Yes, your motherboard should have 2 SATA ports, however, the SSD won't perform as fast as it could in a newer motherboard. You'll also most likely require a power adapter (molex to sata).

Want to change from SCSI to SATA. How can this be done?


Hello,

You will need to change the backplane to a SATA type. (Fairly easy) Once done, you can change your hard drives and start using the new configuration.

Good Luck

I was assembled a PC to edited video HD. This PC comprises: mothercard Supermicro X8DAH+, 24 GB of RAM, 2 X Xeon 5620, 1 X SSD OCZ Agility 2 3 X HDD Hitachi 1TB CD/DVD/BR LITEON ihbs112 GPU...


Remove the 3 hard drives and install Windows on the SSD. After successfully installing Windows you can add the hard drives and create your raid array later. Or even better, pick up a cheap RAID card so your CPU doesn't have to do all of the RAID controller work.

Need help on SuperMicro SuperServer 7043M-6!!


ok, all you have to do is reset CMOS. the same thing happened to me once I tried to install windows on my supermicro board. What you have to do is load the bootable CD that came with the board and follow the instructions in your book.

What happens is that windows does not have the drivers for the supermicro RAID and SATA components. The board will recognize these on it's own until you go to install windows improperly. Windows does not have the drivers for those, realizes it, and says "Windows has stopped to prevent damage" but it does it anyway. Just clear CMOS, read the book with the board on how to install an OS, and try again.

Clearing CMOS: This can be done by taking out the 3.5v watch battery you see on the board for about 5 minutes. Another and riskier way is to clear CMOS by shorting the pads. On a diagram of your board, you should see CMOS Clear. Find those two pads on you board in that general area from the diagram. You'll know you've found it because the board has CMOS Clear printed near them. Just touch them with a screwdriver for 5-10 seconds. CMOS should be clear and ready to start new.

WARNING! Be careful when clearing CMOS with the pads, if you stick the screwdriver in the wrong place, you could damage your board. Be sure to unplug your power supply before working on your machine (I'm sure you know this.) and be sure to get the correct drivers for windows this time! Oh, and rechange any settings you changed in CMOS since it has been reset to the factory defaults.
