My machine rebooted itself twice today and gave the flowing error on re-boot:

A Hyper transport sync flood error occurred on last boot press f1 to resume.

Any ideas as to what might cause this? Hardware maybe?

"A Hyper transport sync flood error occurred on last boot press f1 to resume."

This is a memory issue, check the following:

1: Check that memory is pushed into the slots all the way,
2: Check that your memory is "quality grade", meaning, most of the ddr3 chips are designed for 1.5 volts, but some "after market" (cheap) ddr3 require more like 1.7 and when it doesn't have it it will cause a crash, lockup, reboot and error code. Normally this will happen when there is a heavy requirement load being put on the processor and the memory can't handle it, like video games, PBX's under use, etc...

Check to make sure that your memory is the good grade, check to see if your bios is able to set memory voltage, maybe run it up to say 1.8 (wouldn't go much higher), or better still change out your memory with another brand and see if that cures the prob. NOTE: If you change the voltage specs, you do so at your own risk.

If this is occurring now that you have installed Elastix and not before when you had Windows OS, then you may want to check you bios and see if there is an upgrade you have to do for Linux to work. I have run across this occurring on cheap HP & some Dell machines. Search the Google thingy for Hyper Transport Sync Flood for better knowledge of this.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Amphibian

It has been happening a lot today so I swapped the ram and still happening. It is high end hardware. What would you try next?

Re: Re:Machine rebooted itself twice today and gave error

Please, list hard spects, including model and quantity in order to help.Best Regards.
Check error issues at vendors site. f/ex ibm/hp/dell,etc
Check parity bios configs. Verify mem voltage.
Check Power management bios config.
Best Regards
