SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15 Service Pack 1 (SLES 15 SP1)


On DELL EMC AMD Rome CPU based Servers, after booting into SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15 SP1 the kernel log may contain ‘EDAC amd64: Error: F0 not found, device 0x1460 (broken BIOS?)’. 
This issue may occur on the following platforms: 
Dell EMC PowerEdge R6515 
Dell EMC PowerEdge R6525 
Dell EMC PowerEdge C6515 
Dell EMC PowerEdge R7515 
Dell EMC PowerEdge R7525


Update the kernel to version 4.12.14-197.18.1 or higher.


The error ‘EDAC amd64: Error: F0 not found, device 0x1460 (broken BIOS?)’ is generated because the AMD ROME CPU enablement is not present in the kernel EDAC driver. Required enablement is added in the fixed SLES 15 SP1 kernel.
