    I had some similar troubles last year (with Tyan S2875).
    The thread can still be found:


    "FF" is not documented in the manual. But due to Tyan's support,
    "FF" means that nothing is getting past the CPU's themselves during
    the POST process.

    I had to return my mainboard twice and the second replacement
    board finally worked. You should contact Tyan's support. They
    usually respond quite fast (at least here in Germany).

    My guess is that they will tell you to return your mainboard
    to Tyan for either repair or replacement.

    Also, please keep in mind the stage you are at, sometimes posting can take a
    long time. Once with a Tyan board (S2460) I thought the board was bad but
    then I waited an extra long time and it finally posted and I got to the next
    stage which was probably installing the OS or flashing the BIOS or
    something, and then it never took a long time to post again.
