Install fails on SuperMicro SuperWorkstation RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I am unable to install Win8 or W2K12 RP on my SuperMicro 7047A-T SuperWorkstation.

    I boot from USB, black install screen shows, then bluescreen, collecting info, reboot

    Same problem with Win8 or with W2K12.

    Win7 and W2K8R2 have no problems on same hardware.

    The system contains:

    SuperMicro 7047A-T (http://www.supermicro.com/products/system/4U/7047/SYS-7047A-T.cfm)
    2 x Xeon E5 2660 processors
    4 x 4GB RAM (32GB)
    Intel 320 SSD 60GB (boot drive)
    NVidia Quadro 4000 VGA

    How can I make the installer wait for me to read the error code before it just reboots?

    Any other ideas?

  • Quick call into Supermicro, they are updating their X9DA*-based platforms (like this 7047A) with a new BIOS that resolves the issue.
