Re: DL380 G1 CPU Upgrade to SMP

Maybe you can just fix it with System Configuration Utility (SCU).
Open SCU (F10 during POST check or boot with SmartStart 5.5). If I remember right when you run SCU and select something like "configure hardware" you will have CPU error message box and one of the options in the message box will be "problem has been fixed". Try to choose this option and see that happens.

Hi Fraser,

The error should go away after running SCU in F10, howerver if still having an issue, update your bios if not current from below link...
