110 - Out of memory space for option ROM on HP Compaq d530

When a "110 - Out of memory space for option ROM" message appears during POST on a HP Compaq d530, this is caused by a lack of low level memory addresses available for all attached hardware. According to HP, this may happen if you have PCI devices installed on the PC. To resolve this, follow the online documentation and head in the BIOS. Under Power-On Options make sure that "ACPI/USB Buffers @ Top of Memory" option is enabled.

Once enabled, save BIOS settings changes and reboot. The earlier error will no longer appear.
