Proliant 1600 - W2k won't recognize second processor

I am running the latest bios and the POST recognizes the second processor. When I check in Windows it shows "Standard PC". I've tried changing the driver to MPS but then the server locks up on boot up.

Did you run setup and enable multiprocessor mode there ?

If you do a SmartStart installation of Win2K this should happen automatically.

If you did a manual installation boot from system partition, press CTRL-A to enable advanced options, then run system setup and there change APIC mode.

Best thing is to run a system erase and allow SmartStart to configure everything automatically. That way all settings will match and will be correct.

Thanks for the responses. I forgot to set the OS to Win2k. Once I set that the system came up and recognized the second processor. Thanks again for the help.
