Re: Processor in incorrect slot

Hello,
Please update the system bios and try moving the CPUs around. If not then suspect you have a failed CPU or system board.

Re: Processor in incorrect slot

I just ran into this for the first time on an 1850R this weekend.

It was a failed system board. You are unable to update the firmware image because the system halts. I was actually able to get a different message once and did update the firmware with no change. Replaced the system board and everything has worked great so far.

Good Luck.
