I am sure some of you are already aware of this, if you boot any AMD EYPC processor in a compatible Dell Server, it becomes vendor locked by blowing a fuse within the processor.
Like many I wasn’t until a few days ago, my school fees to learn this lesson was to lock a 7282 EPYC pressor to dell ($800). Whilst spending many hours trying to resolve an “error 22” on a ASRock ROMED8-2T mainboard with 2 processors that had been booted in a Dell Server another $1000 plus of lost revenue.
Thanks to the following article I now have a full understanding of the issue.
I would be great if Tom could mention this in a suitable video. As I sure it will catch out more people in the future as they become more affordable for test labs. Sorry if you already have mentioned and I’ve missed it.
