Compaq DL380 R01 WS2k3 can't detect 2nd processor

We've a DL380 R01 with dual 733/133 256k Pentium 3's & 898Mb RAM installed.
We've just installed win2k3 server and unfortunately it won't detect the second processor. We've tried changing the driver in device manager and we've also tried re-installing and forcing the HAL to a multiprocessor version during windows setup but it just hangs.
anyone have any thoughts as to the cause?

Hi Charles,

Windows 2003 is not supported on this Server as per OS Matrix.

Also check the following article:

Try upgrading the firmware and check if that is of any help.

Regards,
Raj.
