CPLD chips update for DL580 G7 with Windows Server 2012 R2

I am responsible for ProLiant DL580 upgrade to four E7-4870 processors. We are running Windows Server 2012 R2. As it has been previously solved, I need CPLD chips update for Windows Server 2012 R2 to proceed. Otherwise, only 3 out of four precessors are operating.

I face the same issue: if PROC3 is installed, the machine is not working.

1) PROC1=A, PROC2=C, PROC3=X, PROC4=B, POST=TRUE

2) PROC1=A, PROC2=C, PROC3=D, PROC4=B, POST=FALSE

A,B,C,D are E7-4870 (SLC3T) 130W TDP X is empty socket

I live now with 3 new CPUs (30 physical cores) in position 1. I really need to install the fourth processor. I can not find any relevant installation files to update my CPLD chips. hp ftp server folders are empty now.

Do you have any ideas how to fix the problem? I am quite new to the topic but spent much time trying.

I recall having a CPLD related issue in the past, different from yours but I had to open a case with HP and the tech sent me a special link to download CPLD code flasher for windows; it worked no different than a firmware flasher; reboot was required and overall it did solve the original problem (the original problem had to do with spurious NMI being generated by the CPLD)
