Hi,

Just got a x470d4u for a freenas build.

When I first installed it I could access the Ipmi with the default username and password of admin/admin. At no point have I changed this.

I updated the bios on the motherboard to 3.20 as it wasn't detecting my m.2 drives and the latest bios is meant to improve m.2 compatibility. After doing that I couldn't get to the bios screen via the ipmi kvm, it just said no display after display the entering setup message and then reboots.

I updated the ipmi bmc firmware to 01.60.00 try and sort that out, the update went fine and I could login, but still couldn't see the bios screen via ipmi kvm. As a last resort I carried out a reset to defaults for the ipmi interface. I'm now unable to login with the default username and password. I get the error invalid username or password.

I've managed to set the machine up by using a keyboard and monitor plugged in to the machine, but defeats the purpose of having the ipmi feature. I did notice that the bios mentions bmc refresh failure. What can I do to resolve this? Can the ipmi interface be reset without access or will this be a replacement motherboard?

Hi,

After being stuck in the same case as you, i finnaly found then solution :

You need some files :

AST2500 SoCFlash
ASRock BMC firmware
FreeDOS usb flash drive

1) Create a USB Flash Drive with FreeDOS on it
2) Copy SoCFlash for AST2500 on it
3) Copy uncompressed BMC Firmware on it

Then boot on USB Drive, and run the following command (File names are thoses on my USB key, adapt for your key)

socflash.exe x470d4~1.ima backup.ima

Power off, then unplug power for some few time. Plug in, let BMC boot completely for about 90seconds, and enjoy !

AST2500 SoCFlash : https://mega.nz/#!ixxxnAYb!XJuoY_RtNXy-zsDtUXZsaK3QF-ncNv-7hFqL29gYuNI
