But in HP Community members say that DX6100 supports at least a Pentium 640 processor

The dx6100 BIOS is suitable for HP Compaq dc7100 Convertible Minitower (DC7100CMT).

According to datasheet for dc7100, it supports the Intel Pentium 4 670 Processor (3.8-GHz, 2 MB L2 cache, 800 MHz FSB)

DX6100 and DC7100 use the same chipset - 915G.

Thus, the restriction of installation the Pentium 4 670 in dx6100 embedded in BIOS software.

Will anyone modify BIOS and remove this restriction?

I will be glad to answer to anyone.

I apologize for my English.

Thanks!



P.S.: Possibly this restriction is set not in BIOS, but in Processor Microcode Update
