I Just got a 720 (8202-E4B) off ebay and cannot get the thing to IPL. I was able to reset the password and get into ASMI and was able to reset it to factory (not sure if it fully reset or not seems like the firmware reset portion isn't working. It says "powering on system" then resets the service processor). When I try to power on the control panel flips through some codes and ends at C10F20FF then the service processor resets. I Looked up the SRC code, but not really seeing anything in the IBM documentation on how to fix it. In ASMI two errors are listed. The first is B181C350 then one second later B18187DA. Both loops back to loading firmware (procedure FSPSP04). I followed the steps to load the latest from a USB flash drive for a standalone system (rpm file on usb drive plugged into the right USB port on the back), but still get the same errors when I try to power it up. I feel like it is a simple step I am missing, but I have never dealt with an IBM power before, just an old AS/400 from back in the day that just needed to be fed disks and hooked to a console :) Obviously this thing is old and IBM wouldn't even answer the phone for it, even if I could afford the contract :) Any tips would be appreciated.
