Trying to revive a server... AIC-7896 freezes pre-POST

IF you can find the documentation for the motherboard, see if there is a
reset jumper. That jumper should reset the BIOS to factory defaults to
allow it to get through the post and into setup. Some motherboards
actually take you into setup with the jumper moved to reset bad configurations.
Also, unplug any cards and drives, leave the system board with just ram and
cpu and video (unless it is built in) until you get it configured.
