I tried using the steps you provided and ran into a road block. I got the error message " The BIOS image does not support the current hardware configuration. Flash update is aborted". Is there something I need to do before I can downgrade?
Did the downgrade in effort to install 2012 r2. After reboot, I have no video. Reseated all cards and memory. Still no luck. Any suggestions. Powers on and fans kick in, light blinking, drives solid green lights, no Video.
