IBM 3850 m2 install notes

Two Pro/1000 PT Dual Port Nics were installed in the ‘easy/screwless’ pci express ports I think numbers 6 and 7 for some reason the server would not boot. Moved it over to 0 and 1 and boots just fine.

Had very strange issue where server would not boot due to what looked like a display issue, it would cycle the monitor on and off without a display for vmware server, server 2003, everything. After swapping out almost everything a flash of the bios and a reset to default settings got it working again… very strange.
