Re: Xeon E5410 will run on DL 140 G3?

We tried Intel Xeon 5420 (2.5 GHz, Quad Core) on the latest BIOS release, booted.. Ram count ok... but then a sudden message "Unsupported processor... please restart the server"...


The hardware supports it for sure (5000x chipset) I guess HP is blocking it via software,
