TA-1125: Fail to initialize the operating system video driver for the ASPEED* Base Management Controller (PDF)
Intel® has discovered an issue in which the host fails to initialize the operating system video driver for the ASPEED* Baseboard Management Controller (BMC). Headless or remote management environments are not affected.
Intel has confirmed that the failure has no bearing on system performance; it only impacts local video graphics. In detail, when the operating system loads, the OS-embedded ASPEED* video driver is not able to access a portion of the BMC memory space. Therefore, the process stalls.
