DL360 G5 hangs on black screen after installing Hyper-V role

I have read that this may be a BIOS problem.  My BIOS = P58

 

I have enabled "Intel(r) Virtualization Technology" and disabled "Intel Core C3 State" in the BIOS.

 

This covers all of the solutions I have found, and has not fixed the problem.  Can anyone offer some assistance please?

 

OS = Win2008 R2

Hi,

 

P58 is not your bios revision, this is the System model code,  eg. all DL360G5's are P58 bios models regardless of actual revision.

 

Go to the HP site & download the latest online rompaq for the system: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=3288144&prodTypeId=15351&prodSeriesId=1121486&swLang=8&taskId=135&swEnvOID=4064

 

The latest revision is 2011.05.02

 

Hope this helps.

Thank you for your responce.  I did figure this out yesterday.  My firmware is all up to date.  My options were set correctly in the BIOS.  I simply removed one of the processors and it worked like a charm.  I read somewhere that you can have the same model processor but there can be a "stepping" difference between the two.

Hi,

 

Glad you got it working after a fashion at least.

 

Yeah the step code is basically the desig revision of a particular cpu, for example E5400 series cpu's come in C0 & E0 steppings.  For most software this isnt an issue but it can cause problems with some stuff.

 

The easiest way to check if your two cpus are a different stepping is to check the 5 character spec code on each chip;

 

Example for an E5450: SLANQ = C0 stepping  & SLBBM = E0 Stepping.

 

The processors families for the DL360G5 are at low prices now so it shouldnt be too hard to pick up a cheap replacement if it does turn out your issue is stepping.

 

Hope this is some help.

 

Cheers
