RE: PE 2900 E201B error

The BMC can not handle a BIOS update?  

Everything is seated.  Is there a list of CPU's that do work with the 2.6.1 BIOS?  That is what the board came with.  I even tried a single CPU.  Both are E5420 Xeon and they both worked in the old board.  

If nothing else I can just get two more CPU's.  Old socket 771 chips are cheap, I just need to know what will work with the current BIOS on the board.

Never mind.  Found the problem.  The board I got was a Gen 1 and not a Gen 3 like I thought I ordered.  Already looking into a return and ordering another.
