Hello i have a production sku w2600cr2 and i know there are bios' that will support the QA91 Xeons on this board, (they run on certain asus and supermicro boards) where could i find a bios for this system to boot, i dont expect it to be stable just to run a few tests regarding numa and off board io...Please help me with this.
Thanks so much for your time,
Production level BIOSes might work. What happens when you try?
Unfortunately, pre-production BIOSes aren't ever released publicly, and you would have a very difficult time dowgrading a production board to a pre-production BIOS .
