CPU Upgrades

I recently acquired a ML370 without cpu's.
I installed two P3 1Ghz processors (plus PPMs).

Interestingly when I set Win2K to Multiprocessor mode, the system becomes unstable and locks up while booting windows. When using only one of the cpu's does not produce this fault. I have also swapped the cpu's and ppms hoping to find the fault to no avail.

The firmware is P17 (2-14-2002)

Re: CPU Upgrades

I worked out what the problem was.
It was my fault - I should have RTFM a bit closer, I was trying to use 100Mhz FSB cpu's which the proliant doesn't seem to like.
