Not sure if this is the right forum but... I recently purchased a new computer system with Intel's Xeon W Scalable W-2145 processor. After installing XE 2019 Professional, the system consistently hangs on restart. Using a restore point just prior to XE 2019 installation, the system is stable. Having repeated this process a couple of times, I decided to only install the Fortran compiler but not the other components Inspector, Advisor, and Amplifier. The system restarts normally and consistently. This make me wonder if it is perhaps a compatibility issue with the processor and one or more of the other components. The release notes indicate Intel Xeon E5 & E7 family are recommended but I have not seen anything specifically mentioning incompatibility with the Xeon W family. Any helpful and informative thoughts?

Hi Glenn, I've the same CPU type and chipset and have no issues. I doubt, that the CPU is the reason for your hangs. Might be your OS or UEFI version is the reason for the issue...
