    I doubt the new firmware broke you, but may be better at catching problems
    undetected by the old firmware.
    Do you have access to a system you can connect via NULL modem to TTYA on the
    Sun Fire 280R
    or do you use the RSC for this already?

    If so then try setting diag-level to max and turn the machine off via the
    key.
    Then turn it back on with the key in the diag-position.

    You may get lucky and have something called out like a CPU.

    Otherwise you may need to remove CPU1 and run diags with just CPU0
    installed.
    If it fails remove CPU0 and install CPU1 in the CPU0 slot and try again.

    If it doesn't fail, then CPU1 was probably bad, but still swap it in for
    CPU0 just to see if it then fails.

    Should it fail with either CPU by itself in the CPU0 position, then the
    system board could be the problem afterall.
    Or you could get lucky and just reseating the CPUs and torqueing them
    correctly could make the problem vanish.

    Good luck!

    No, I haven't access anymore to the system.
    It cycle on:
    z
    Fatal Error reported by: (PCI-PBM)

    I try putting off some componements (as you suggest CPU but RAM too...)

    Thanks for your reply,
