I'm working on this server build and just cant get it to boot. Hoping to use it for an ESXi server, with FreeNAS as one of the VMs.
I have this Supermicro PDSME motherboard I got from eBay, 2x 2GB DDR2 667 non-ECC Ram, and an Intel Q6600 Processor. It just wont boot. I dont even get any beeps from the board. It has an onboard speaker, and I also tried the one from the case.
I could buy a different CPU to see if that is the issue, but I've already bought 2 different sets of memory (started with DDR2-800 which the motherboard doesnt support)
Any ideas or help would be appreciated !

It doesn't look like it supports that processor at all.

I'll just buy CRAP off ebay and when it doesn't work, I'll ask people that can't look at the situation directly to help out... DUH! You got what you paid for... JUNK!
