Compaq Proliant ML370 motherboard swap

I just replaced the motherboard in a pre-HP Compaq Proliant ML370 (1.0 Ghz P3, dual processor). The motherboard is an exact duplicate. The processors came from the previous motherboard. When I attempt to boot the machine, the server reports that the processors are not supported. I cannot get past this error to update the BIOS (if this is even needed). Any ideas, anyone?

Try to boot with one CPU at time see which one will allow you to boot, if none; find lover speed CPU, also verify if there any Jumpers for speed clock, compare with old one. When you get it back, run SP19619 for F10.

The BIOS was out of date. I booted the server using an older processor, updated the BIOS, and put the newer processors back in. Server is now working great.
