ML350 G5- System board Quadcore support

Dear guys,
I have installed a Quad-core E5430 on an systemboard with PN:395566-001.
The Server does not boot, because it says that not support this processor. Is there any soft/firmware-update, that can fix this problem?
Or do we need to change system board.
If someone has an idea, please post me.
Thx

Install the old CPU. Do a firmware upgrade. The E5430 is listed on the quickspecs. It could be your firmware is too old.

Hello Michael,

thx for your answer.
I have installed one of the latest firmware CD´s v.8.70.
At Server startup the BIOS recoginze the processor, but then a error message appears:
Intel 5000Z does not support installed processor.

Any idea, how to fix this problem?

It only support 5000 and 5100 series
