I recently got a set of Xeon 5650 CPU's to replace a pair of 5620's that were in my C2100 FS12-TY, After powering off the system gracefully, i unplugged it, and replaced the cpu's and now the system will not power on. I have put the old cpu's back into the system and still it does not power on.
I have removed everything except for 1 CPU and 1 Stick of RAM and still the same state, Solid Amber light and Solid Blue light on the front.
I have not updated the Bios in this system it is still version S993B15.
Also of note the BMC will not pick up a DHCP ip address, it was before i swapped out CPU's but now nothing.
If anyone has any suggestions that would be greatly appreciated.

i was actually able to get this resolved.
it appears that the bmc firmware was either corrupt or did not support the cpus.
i flashed a new bmc firmware using the recovery jumpers and was able to get the system up and its been stable.
I'm glad to hear it all worked out.
