Common Problems
The system does not boot or show video at power on.
•
If configuring with only one processor verify that the processor is in the
Primary Processor socket and the terminator is in the Secondary Processor
socket. (See the server board components diagram on page 6).
•
Beep code 1-3-3-1 means you have unrecognized or bad memory. Remove
DIMMs one at a time to isolate which one is causing problems.
•
Your power supply must provide 0.8 A of +5 V Standby current to support
WOL. If the standby current is not present, your board will not boot.
The system sometimes works, but is exhibiting erratic behavior.
•
This is typically the result of using a under-powered power supply. Make
sure it’s at least a 300 W power supply.

Install the I/O Shield
✏
NOTE
An ATX 2.03-compliant I/O shield is provided with the server board. The
shield is required by Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) regulations to
minimizes EMI. If the shield does not fit the chassis, obtain a properly
sized shield from the chassis supplier.
The shield fits the rectangular opening near the power supply in the back of
the chassis. The shield has cutouts that match the I/O ports.
1 Install the shield from inside the chassis. Orient the shield so that the
cutouts align with the corresponding I/O connectors on the server board.
Make sure the metal fingers are on the inside of the chassis.
2
Position one edge so that the dotted groove is outside the chassis wall, and
the lip of the shield rests on the inner chassis wall.
3
Hold the shield in place, and push it into the opening until it is seated.
Make sure the I/O shield snaps into place all the way around.

Place the I/O label on the I/O shield (on the outside of the chassis). The cut
outs on the label are for the top serial port and the parallel port.
STL2 Server Board Quick Start Guide
Rearrange the Standoffs
Your chassis may have metal standoffs already installed. You must rearrange
them so they match the holes in the server board. Failure to properly rearrange
the metal standoffs may cause the server board to malfunction and may
permanently damage the server board.
The following illustration shows the Intel® SC5000 Server Chassis. The
standoffs in the chassis must be installed in screw holes 1, 4, 5, 6, 7, 13, 17,
18, 19. The hole numbers are stamped in the chassis sheet metal. Make sure the
two positioning standoffs are in holes 17 and 19. You chassis may be different
from the illustration.

STL2 Server Board Quick Start Guide
Install the Server Board
The screws for installing the server board are shipped with the chassis. You may
need to move cables out of the way to properly install your server board.
1 Tilt the board into the chassis I/O connector end first. Position the board so
the screw holes line up with the standoffs. There are two positioning
standoffs that extend into the holes on the server board. These two
standoffs will help you position the board correctly. Make sure the I/O
connectors stick out through the I/O shield. Look through the holes in the
I/O shield to make sure that the metal tabs on the I/O shield are on top of
the USB and NIC connectors, not inside the connectors.
2
Insert one screw through one of the mounting holes of the board and into a
threaded standoff. Do not tighten the screw until the next step.
3
Insert the remaining screws through the mounting holes and into the
threaded standoffs. Make sure the board is properly seated, then tighten all
the screws firmly, starting with the screws in the center of the board.
