Error: 0146 - PCI out of resource

When an Intel® Xeon Phi™ Coprocessor or multiple PCI Express* (PCIe*) adapters are installed, the following error can display during POST, and the server halts:

0146 - PCI out of resource

To resolve the issue, follow these steps:

  1. Temporarily remove the add-on PCI Express* adapters.
  2. Update the BIOS and firmware to the latest revision.
  3. Disable any unused devices and Option ROMs in the BIOS, like onboard SATA/SAS controllers (under Advanced > Mass Storage Controller Configuration) and onboard NICs (under Advanced > NIC Configuration).
  4. Go to Advanced > PCI Configuration
    • Set 'Maximize Memory below 4GB' to Disabled.
    • Set 'Memory Mapped I/O above 4 GB' to Enabled.
    • Set 'Memory Mapped I/O Size' to 256G or higher, for an Intel® Xeon Phi™ Coprocessor. For other PCIe Adapters, use an appropriately large value.
  5. Install the add-on PCI Express* adapters one at a time and see if the server boots properly.
