If anyone ends up needing one, I have a spare IO9.ramq wrote:The Base Compute Module works standalone just like any standard system. They are fitted with an IO9 adapter card which provides gigabit Ethernet, SCSI for internal disks, IDE for system CD/DVD-ROM and provides NVRAM to keep system enviroments. There's also correct IDE+SCSI cabling for the drives and ofcourse disk sleds. Without the IO9 card the machine cannot work standalone. (These cards are a rare sight and often cost lots of money on eBay)
The MPX Module lacks the IO9 daughtercard, the drive cables and sleds. (Without this it won't work standalone and must be connected to either a Base Compute Module or a NUMAlink router.) Other than that, it's an ordinary Origin brick.

It'd be a pretty nice way to end up with a quad processor - VPro equipped workstation.
Drive? For whatever reason you're making way too much out of Tezro PROM screen switch. It's there as an option for whoever owns a capable system, to use or not as they see fit. Nothing more, nothing less.SAQ wrote:I've not understood the drive to "convert" to a Tezro. The Onyx350 InfinitePerformance will do anything a Tezro will do and maintains the possibility of further expansion later. Is the InfinitePerformance splash screen just really bad looking?
