Hi,

It seems that the systemboard already installed in the server does not support Quad core processor.It would be a systemboard supported only on dual core procesors only.

You would have to upgrade the systemboard as well

Hp Spare Part number : 439399-001

Yes ! This server does support Quad core processor but with Quad core compatible systemboards only.

Also Quad core systemboards are backward compatible !

Try to swop the processors.

I mean MOVE processor FROM Slot 1 TO slot 2 and vice-versa.

Hi,
I'm in the very same situation as Qutub-uz-Zaman.

How do I check what partno my mainboard has? I've checked the HP System Management Homepage but found only the serialno...?

Re: HP ML 350 G5 Server's Processor upgrading

Part Number of the Systemboard would written on the systemboard itself... i guess you will hv to open the server to check that.

Alternatively you can give the commplete desction of the server or the serial number of the server. I will get the server details accordingly and let u know.

you can get the Serial number of server from server itself , or from SMH under System Info on the home page.

Re: HP ML 350 G5 Server's Processor upgrading

Very kind of you - my server is very hard to reach as it is now and I would have to power it down. This is the MB details from SMHP:
--------------------------------
Product Name: ProLiant ML350 G5
ROM Version: D21-08/21/2007
Serial Number: XXXXXXXXX (for your security, I have removed the serial number from your post above - that's information you probably don't want to make publicly available- Forum Moderator)
--------------------------------
BTW, the server was purchased in march 2007 and I have run the HP Firmware Maintenance CD v7.91 already.

As a bonus, would it be possible to install the old Xeon5130 in another ML350 (identical to this one with s/n CZJ707069J) so I'd get 2 CPU's in that one?
I.e. would the power regulator that comes with a QuadCore CPU upgrade kit fit in the other identical ML350 with the old Xeon5130?

Best regards
Niklas

Also the machineID's on both ML350's are: CPQ0764 if that is of any assistance.

ProductID of both ML350's are: 417536-421
