DL145 G1 Servers w/ Dual cores Opterons?

Okay. I'm currently running Opteron dual 254's in my DL145's currently. I have 275's I want to put into them. Is there any bios updates for this? Or? Is there something I'm missing here?

The server boots up fine, shows that there is 2 CPU's with 4 cores. but it wont let me boot because the CPU is "Unsupported" There has to be a BIOS update for this.

Thanks in advance!

Proliant DL145 supports AMD Opteron 242, 244, 248 and 250.
Those are single core with 1MB L2 cache.

It's the DL145 G2 the one that supports AMD Opteron Model 275.

Please check server Quickspecs before purchasing anything, you'll save yourself time and money.

hi

vcespon something curious is that Opteron dual 254 is not in the quickspecs unless this AMD Opteron Model 250 is for the same family.

update the BIOS and let us know you can try also clear CMOS

Do you have to clear cmos before you put in the new processors?

hi

of course not, that is in case updating System BIOS does not work? by the way it worked?

I mean clear CMOS is another troubleshooting that you could try

No, it didn't work. Still comes up with unknown processor... :-( I think maybe all you can use in these thing are 254's or lower.

or using two, have you trying swapping them?

I've only tried 1 275, I can try 2 275's later in the week when I get more DDR memory for the server. I had to use the memory in that server for something. So it has nothing right now.
