Upgrating a Compaq Proliant 8000

After replacing the 550MHz XEON processors to 700MHz/2MB XEON, after the processor's initialize during the POST i get the following message
"WARNING : Physical ROM Update required to support installed processor(s)
Contact a Compaq Service Representative."
I've already upgraded the firmware on the server, is there a way to eliminate this message?
thank's

Hello Tasar,

Power up the server.

View the BootBlock ROM date through System Information menu on the IMD.

If the BootBlock ROM date is earlier than 17/04/2000, then the server BootBlock ROM chip must be replaced.

Thanks
