Hi,

One of our servers crashed with purple screen of death due to a machine check exception. I can't find any information on what these status codes mean, can anyone help?

The processor is an Xeon 5160 3GHz.

Is it a server board with a BMC or uBMC? If so, the decoded version will have been recorded in the SEL.
