rp7420

Hi,

I have a working rp7420 with an A6913A cell board in it.It has an A6437A PA8800 1 ghz proc. When I try and replace it with an AB537A PA8900 1.1 ghz proc I get an unsupported cpu error and the cell halts. I have done this before and it has worked. Does anyone have an idea?

Thanks
Jon

Jon,

I assume you've already disocunted PDC/firmware as a possibility?
