I don't know if it worked prior shipping or not, but now it gives 0011c01 error during BOOT, then Gfx. conf. error and the red LED stays on. I've seen on an old posting that a fan (#2) might be the problem. Where can I find a list with error codes and which one is fan 2?
If what you saw might have been "001c01", it's not an error message. It'd the "rack/slot id" assigned to /broadcast by the L1 controller in your Tezro, and is an expected behavior.

That certainly could be the necessary resolution to his issue, but might be better saved until some of the lesser options are exhausted.
marius, I'd start with j-j's helpful suggestion to re-try the power up sequence with a kb&m attached.
Your Tezro will output diagnostic info over the 9-pin serial port labeled "Console" during the power on sequence. If there are problems with your Tezro that information can prove helpful to zero where and what to attempt to remedy the problem(s).
If you're not already familiar with the how to access the console via a serial terminal, the nekowiki has an article that goes over the basics of serial port communications: http://www.nekochan.net/wiki/Console_Ca ... figuration
The console port on your Tezro should also provide access to the L1 controller. The L1 (Level 1) controller allows you to control/monitor a number of essential system functions.
The L1 should be accessible anytime power is connected to your Tezro. If you'd like to monitor the power on diagnostics info, connect a serial terminal to the Console port. I'd suggest also connecting the keyboard, mouse and graphics monitor (I'd disconnect power before attaching the kb&m).
Configure your the serial terminal of choice at 38,400 | 8 | N | 1, and set a large scroll back buffer so you can easily capture diagnostic and other output from your Tezro.
Connect the Tezro's power cable and check for output on the serial terminal; if all has gone well you'll likely see 001c01-L1
at the serial terminal prompt.
If you are able to access the L1, attempt to power up the system with the L1 command power up
, followed almost immediately by a combined press
of the control
keys on the serial terminal. The control d
key press should switch the Tezro console from L1 to console access, if there are errors during the power on diagnostic (POD) routine you should see them on the terminal.
If there aren't any POD errors, watch for the prompt to press escape to enter the PROM. If your Tezro didn't ship with a bootable IRIX installation you'll need PROM access to install IRIX.
If you don't have an IRIX install (to run an hinv), the L1 command serial all
will provide you with a list major system components/part numbers; and while the system is powered up, the L1 command env
will let you check on the status fan 2
(and other power/cooling related functions).
