One issue I have run into with a 4U server is that the BIOS was configured
to only output on the on-board VGA output.  This despite having a PCIe

to get a VGA monitor long enough to alter your BIOS settings.  Obviously
last Sunday you had a working system.  What type of display device did you
use to complete the build?
