Unsupported CPU Detected

I tried to boot up a ML570 ProLiant server and received the following error:

Compaq System BIOS-P20 (01/21/2001)

Processor 1 Initialized at 900/100 MHZ with 2MB Cache
Processor 2 Initialized at 900/100 MHZ with 2MB Cache
Processor 3 Initialized at 900/100 MHZ with 2MB Cache
Processor 4 Initialized at 900/100 MHZ with 2MB Cache
Unsupported processor detected
system halted.

Can anyone help me solve this problem

Re: Unsupported CPU Detected

Run over reset
Try to downgrade to dual CPU (I believe you will be needed Terminator board instead others CPU)
Invalidate CMOS Settings, use jumper #6 from System Maintenance box (use side panel for legend)
Disconnect any additional Cards
Swap CPU around
See if Error will go away when nothing connected
Verify Latest System ROM

I/O board might be defective

Re: Unsupported CPU Detected

KOV nailed it, you need the ROM at a minimum of 4/15/2001 to support the 900Mhz CPU:

Just upgrade to the latest ROMPAQ and you are rocking.
