Just to confirm, are you having difficulty booting to BIOS on a brand new build?
If yes, try to check that the RAM is installed correctly and that the heatsink is not over tightened.
Thank you, Pastrychef. I have removed and reinstalled the RAM - Corsair Vengeance 2x8GB, 2666MHz. Can't see that I did it any different. I updated the BIOS first, which was probably a misstep because now I don't know which made the difference. Anyway, the Gene manual contradicts Stork's guide, says the Flashback USB port is upper one just beneath the LAN port. That worked (flashing blue lights).
When the BIOS update finished, I tried to boot into BIOS and got an error 53 = invalid memory type or incompatible memory speed. I tried using the MemOK button as per the Gene manual, but it didn't seem to find a compatible memory setting.
The strange thing is this is exactly the memory that Stork used. One thing I notice about the QVL is that neither the 2666MHz nor the 2133MH list include any 2x8GB configurations. Anyway, before I buy different memory, I'd appreciate any advice.
