HP xw4600 Bios Upgrade for Xeon X3363
#11
Yes, thanks... It should not work, but I'd like to give it a shot before I invest in an X3363.

Already got the chip and the sticker adapter on the back, now I just need to flash the BIOS and cut off the plastic 775 keying.

I have an E5430 SLANU and a E5450 SLBBM.

I will inform you gentlemen of the results, G-D willing.

Flashed to latest BIOS (1.34 I think).

Flashed updated microcode.

Result:

E5450 SLBBM: Fail
E5430 SLANU: Fail


Another thing to note was that GCDROM could detect the SATA controller but not the stock Optiarc drive, eventhough IDE mode was set.

AHCI.sys (Intel CD Driver from HP sp39596) did though, when it was set to AHCI.


Ok, looks like I'll need to buy an X3363.  Thanks chaps.

It's microcode update for current CPU only. So you use it after(!) installing new CPU.

So the X5460 will not work with this? The Dell 545 I modded died so I bought a xw4600 board, right now I have my Q9400.

@DeathBringer can you update for the X5460?
