Hi,

If we install the second processor after intallation what is the outcome.

Reason for doing so.
Because we can validate if we get any error since os will be there and we can check with memory dump else.

OR ELSE

http://h18023.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/download/23182.html
use the link download the offline daignostics and run it under loops to validate the H/W of the server.

I think installing with one CPU is good. then install other becwe get more option to dig into.

Regards,
Prashant S.

There is no problem if we install single CPU.

I installed the second processor after intallation. After the system opens and As I log on the system, it freezes without error again.

Re: DL140 G2 Double CPU Windows Installation Problem

I have the same problem.
We have DL 140 G2 part number: 375592-421. The server has 2 CPU, 4 X 512 MB RAM, 2 HDD 80 GB SATA and CD-ROM. The problem is that installation of windows 2000/2003 hangs with two processors installed. I have tried with one processor and installation completes as normal, after that I have added second processor and after the first restart it hangs again. Iâ ve tried installation with Hiperthreading enabled or dislabed - no effect. I can run safe in mode without problems, Iâ ve tried to connect to SAC but no effect at all. I have ran Offline Diagnostic Ver. 7.0.2 A - no errors were found. I have tried also RedHat AS 4 server and no errors were found, Iâ ve tried also with other Linux live distributions and works fine.

I have the exact same problem on 5 machines. I have a case open at HP about that.
