HPE DL385 G7 Opteron 6300 compatibility

The Opteron 6300 serires should be compatible with G34 motherboards. Therefore, I wonder if there has been a BIOS upgrade for dl385 g7 motherboard so that the board is compatible with the 6300 series.

Greetings!

As per the server quickspecs (Page 21) and Dl385 G7 server option part page, AMD Opteron 6300 series processors are not supported.

Also there is no BIOS release which supports this processor on the server in question.

Result:

After testing with Opteron 6376 with the latest bios, I can confirm that at least Opteron 6376 works on dl385 motherboard
