Problem DH61H0


I have two CPUs, an HP Compaq 6200 pro sff with Intel core I5-2400, and another that has a DH61H0 motherboard, with Intel pentium g630, I wanted to change the processors between the cpus since I saw that they are compatible, in the hp it works perfectly , however in the DH61H0 does not work the i5, when I start it comes out that the processor is not compatible and it is simply turned off, I thought it could be a BIOS error and I never update it, update it until the last version that the page of the manufacturer leaves me, which is the 2012, try with the 2018 but does not let me do it, throws me an error and does not update, would like to change the processors, any ideas?

First of all, in order to update the DH61HO BIOS, you must put the old processor back in. Secondly, you cannot just update to the latest available BIOS. As was documented in the Release Notes, there is a specific process that you will need to follow. I paraphrase here:


  1. Upgrade to BIOS 11. Download from here:
  2. Upgrade to BIOS 813. Download from here:
  3. Upgrade to BIOS 816. Download from here:


Information on the BIOS Update process can be found here: My recommendation is to download the .BIO files, place them on a USB flash disk and then update using the F7 method.


Hope this helps,
