Adding 2nd Processor to ML370

I have added a 2nd processor to my ML370 (1GHz) alon with a 2nd VRM. The BIOS is up to date and sees both processors.

I have completely reinstalled Win 2K using Smartstart 5.1. On firing up the Windows bootstrap page (the one in colour with the logos etc) the progress bar gets to about 75% and the machine reboots.

Any guide as to where I have gone wrong would be appreciated.

Thanks

Ian

Ian:

Check for the latest BIOS and firmware(s) from here:

Other than that, I'd be inclined to check the CPU steppings. Please check this article:

Make a great day!
