DL360 G2 Upgrade CPU to a Tualatin PIII-S

Hi.
Im running a DL360 G2 with a PIII 866. With the newest Smartstart I Updated all components to the latest Versions. And like http://h18023.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/download/15285.html says, Tualatin CPUs where supported.

But know I Replaced the 866 CPU with a 1.266 PIII-S CPU. When I restart the system I become no picture on my screen. A tryed with another 1.266 CPU but its the same. The server will not start.
There is no Beep and the cpus and graffic chip getting warm.

Have I sett the sw2 switch wrong?

Anyone can help me? thx

Ok. Just set SW4-S6 to ON and S2 to OFF and start the system?
What happens than?
Do I have to turn the server off again? Or wait till something happens :) ?

Thanks a lot for your answer, may it will help. I hope so.! :)

1. You have DL360 G1 with system Board 173837-001
For all G1 is the same System rom, however you need to have System board 239120-001
... 866NHz Used only with G1

2. How did you get install G2 System ROM to G1 http://h18023.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/download/15285.html

Something is Confusing.

Ohh..
That explains everything.
Where can I see, if its a G1 or a G2 ?
Sorry, but I thought I have a G2.

My fault. :(
