SR1530ahlx server CPU not supported after BIOS upgrade

Hi to all!

Today i did an Bios upgrade to my old Intel SR1530ahlx server, upgraded bios to V 54 downloaded from here: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/19157/S3000AH-BIOS-Update-Package?product=23083 Download S3000AH BIOS Update Package

After the succesful bios upgrade rebooted the server and i get this error message: Intel(R) Core(TM) 2 Quad Processors Not Supported On This Board !!!

The CPU is a Xeon X3220 2,4 Ghz and the server worked with this cpu before upgrading bios.. i did this upgrade because i was getting an error in bios CPU related, error 8020 if i'm not wrong, it was about the CPU stepping that the old bios was not supporting.

Already tried to clear the CMOS with jumper, also removing bios battery, i also tried multiple bios versions that i found: R40, R42, R46, R52

I'm not sure about what bios version i had before the upgrade, i think it was R34 but i can't find any older version, the oldest was R40.

Any one of you guys have the R34 bios Dos install by any chance ?

Also any suggestions are welcome!

Re: SR1530ahlx server CPU not supported after BIOS upgrade

Hello Adrian,

 

 

Can you please confirm the https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/boards-and-kits/000005625.html# Lsp PBA number and the https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/processors/000005609.html SL code of your processor? With the PBA number we might be able to determine what BIOS version came with your serverboard.

 

 

 

Best regards,

Re: SR1530ahlx server CPU not supported after BIOS upgrade

Hello,

 

 

The BIOS version that came with this server board was BIOS revision R34 , you can confirm https://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/motherboards/server/s3000ah/sb/thol_s3000a... here this information page 4.

 

 

Currently, this BIOS version is not available on our support site, what you can try is test another processor on your system and check if the problem continues.

 

 

 

Best regards,
