DL380 G4 & processor upgrade

Hi all,

I have a DL380 G4 with the latest fw (P51) installed. I got two single core 32bit Xeon installed which I would like to replace with 64bit cpus. So I got myself two XEON 7130M with 604 socket. After installing them and powering up simply nothing happens. What I'm a doing wrong?

Any idea or are the processors simply not supported?

Kind regards Marcus Wolf

but like I told since it is dual core it will need a system board that support dual core Procs
