Okay, this is a mess!!!!

Kept getting a ACPI Error Code with the dual processor Supermicro X9DAi system. Did some research and it is common with these and other Supermicro boards with the early bios'

So, checked on the newer bios files and found the latest bios for that board...........All great............Made a bootable USB flash drive, copied the bios, plugged it in and all went great! Success................Right up until I shut the system down, unplugged the power, reset the bios............Which were the instructions according to Supermicro

Turned the system on and it just does an infinite boot cycle. Turns on and runs for about 10 to 15 seconds, then shuts down, and repeats until I shut the power supply off.

Well, after finding this same issue with other users, I find out that the new bios DOES NOT support the damn ES Xeon chips!!!!!!

Nowhere in the bios listing does it state this issue! One of the users had to contact frigging Supermicro to find this information out!

So here is the part where I hopefully can get some help from a fellow member:

Short of buying or building a bios flash unit I need a socket 2011 version 1 NON-ES chip.

Does anyone have one that they could send? There is an older bios file that stops the ACPI error and allows the use of ES processors.

I will gladly pay shipping both ways and if necessary will pay extra for the use.

Thanks in advance

@stinger608 will that board support a 3930k? You're welcome to use the chip to do what you need to do.

I Don't believe it will support non-Xeon chips but I'll take a look bro!

After looking, it would appear that it only supports Xeon processors @Norton
