Fix server boot stuck at Intel Reference Code Execution 02 1


Even without anything other than reinstalling OS from provider templates and custom kickstart file, few Microtic servers managed to get into a state when every other boot ended up stuck at this screen.

PEI-Intel Reference Code Execution 02

I didn’t find any memory issues. Since reboot != poweoff & poweron so an actual shutdown an power on a minute later fixed later server reboots. Just like a good old desktop.

Update: It was hw – bad RAM modules.
