Re: CPUs with mixed Stepping levels


Upgrade server ROMBios to last version available
And also
Compaq supports multiple processors with N+N Stepping, which means that you can have any stepping in ProLiant-Server, but the Processor with the lowest stepping has to be placed into the first processor slot. The stepping count is related to the whole system.

This might help you.
But infomraiton i have is this
