You have recently changed part of the hardware (motherboard) as it was failing, and after installing this new board without upgrading the firmware version, the system didn't boot and you observe the following error related to the OS:
- UNEXPECTED INCONSISTENCY: RUN fsck MANUALLY
If you installed the same type of Motherboard, please make sure that you update the firmware to its last version. This is a common error when you don't update the BIOS time of the Motherboard, so make also sure that you set the date and time properly. The following example shows how to set the time of HPE ProLiant Gen9 Servers. If you are using a different version, make sure you revise the HPE documentation for this purpose.
Setting the Date and Time
- From the System Utilities screen, select System Configuration > BIOS/Platform Configuration (RBSU) > Date and Time and press Enter.
- Select a setting and press Enter, then complete your entry and press Enter again.
- Date (mm-dd-yyyy) - Enter the date in a month-day-year (mm-dd-yyyy) format.
- Time (hh:mm:ss) - Enter the time in a 24–hour format (hh:mm:ss) format.
- Time Zone - Use the up and down arrow keys to select your current time zone for the system
- Daylight Savings Time
- Enabled - Adjusts the local time displayed by one hour for Daylight Savings Time.
- Disabled - Does not adjust the local time displayed for Daylight Savings Time.
- Time Format
- Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) - Calculates the time stored in the hardware Real Time Clock (RTC) from the associated Time Zone setting.
- Local Time - Removes the use of the Time Zone setting. This option is useful for addressing interaction issues between Windows operating systems set in Legacy BIOS boot mode.
- Press F10.
