moving nvram from u10 mobo to u5 mobo

Discussion in 'Sun Hardware' started by Luis Fernandes, Nov 19, 2003.

  1. We have a U10 system with 2 bad memory slots. So what we've done is
    taken the "crippled" U10 mobo and replaced it with a spare U5 mobo we
    had.

    When the U10 NVRAM is inserted into the U5 mobo and booted, the
    system reports "The IDPROM contents are invalid". The U10 NVRAM chip
    boots fine on the "crippled" u10 mobo.

    Is there anything on the U5 mobo that has to be frobbed to make it
    recognize the U10 NVRAM as valid?
