I did have a spare motherboard, but it doesn't have the UPA slot. It's
3 sbus. Swapping motherboards (everything else is the same) and the
cdrom boots. It also boots from the network. So I definitely wont be
using a monitor on this box, it's going to fulfill the role of a
"server". Maybe running Nagios or something like that. I got a pair of
18gb in it and 512MB of ram.
Unfortunately, not knowing what generates the error, there's not much
I can do. So I guess this UPA motherboard will go to the trash. I'll
save the nvram module.
Thanks all for your help.
