Adding a second CPU to a XW8400

Adding a second CPU to a XW8400

Just a quick note to say that when you add a second CPU to an XW8400 it will not boot, unless you alter the sets in the BIOS.

What you are looking for is:

"set core ID max to 2"

or somthing similar DISABLE this setting, and try again.

Do this before you insert the secound CPU otherwise you will have to remove the second CPU and reboot the XW8400 to get in to BIOS, once this etting has been disabled you can oput the 2nd CPU back in and away you go.

The system used was using the 2.33GHZ 1333FSB xeon, although prceedure may be needed to be carried out if fitting any of the quad core processors that are available for the XW8400.
