I have seen this before and know this will sound strange. Remove the second cpu and start the system. Let it go to the desktop and fully load. Then shut down and install the second processor. Start up and windows should find it.

Hi Bonnier,

Windows 2003 is not supported on this Server as per OS Matrix.
