Westmere EP (Xeon 56xx) support for Fujitsu-Siemens D2618-Bx
#1
Hi, Folks.

Can anybody help me with my trouble?

I have Fujitsu-Siemens D2618-Bx mobo and two Xeons x5650.
Unfortunately D2618-Bx officially doesn't support 56XX Xeon CPUs at all (even e5620).

Exist another mobo D2618-Cx, which technically looks abs. the same and it supports whole family of Westmere EP CPUs, including x5650.

I tried forced flash D2618-Cx bios on my D2618-Bx, but Fujitsu soft didn't allow to do that.
Also i tried to use file P6_INTEL.ALL with microcodes from Cx bios-pack to update microcodes on by Bx. Microcodes were updated, but it actually didn't help to run e5620 or x5675 on Bx mobo. Confused

Can somebody pls provide me a solution or an advice how i can fix this issue and mode the bios to make the D2618-Bx support Westmere EP (Xeon 56xx) CPUs?

Many thanks.

p.s.Bios-packs for D2618-Bx (doesn't support Xeon 56XX) and D2618-Cx(support Xeon 56XX) are attached.

Post screenshots of first (CPU) & third (Mainboard) tabs of CPU-Z with supported CPU.
Have you a hardware programmer to read & write BIOS chip directly?

It rather strange Sad
What is the result with native BIOFLASH.EXE & BiosPack for D2618-Cx?
P.S. Can you calibrate your monitor to see first letter?

If the result will be the same then try other trick.
1. Make flashing disk with BiosPack for D2618-Cx.
2. Copy modded file BIOFLASH.EXE to this disk.
3. Copy A2618_C1.OMF to A2618_B1.OMF
4. Copy C2618_C1.OMF to C2618_B1.OMF
5. Copy D2618_C1.OCF to D2618_B1.OCF
6. Copy M2618_C1.OMF to M2618_B1.OMF
7. Boot and make a photo of result.
